You just can’t make this stuff up….
Cold Cash Congressman to Lead Katrina Tours – ABC News
The Louisiana Democratic Congressman caught on FBI surveillance tapes taking $90,000 in cash has been selected by the Democratic Congressional caucus to lead a delegation from Capitol Hill on a tour of New Orleans next week to “join in prayer with the people of the region, to reflect and remember.”
Jefferson has denied any wrongdoing in a case that sparked controversy when the FBI searched his Capitol Hill offices. The cash was discovered in a freezer in Jefferson’s home.
When I saw the headline, I just assumed the Democratic Congressman would be charging $10,000 a head for his “Katrina Tours.”
But wait, there’s more! The “CoC” continues for the Democrats in Tennessee!
State Sen. Jerry Cooper was indicted today by a federal grand jury in Chattanooga on three felony counts stemming from his role in a land deal that has already led to two people’s convictions.
Cooper, D-Morrison, is accused of bank fraud, mail fraud and conspiracy to commit bank and mail fraud. He could face as much as 65 years in prison and more than $2 million in fines if convicted, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Tennessee.
Come to think of it, I haven’t heard Speaker-to-be-in-her-mind Pelosi (*downing a shot of whiskey*) use the phrase “culture of corruption” for quite…some…time.
