More troubles for the prince of corruption: Scandal-scarred Democratic Congressman William J. Jefferson of Louisiana.

Jefferson, already charged from an FBI raid where agents found piles of cash in his freezer, faces charges of soliciting bribes in two new schemes that has nothing to do with his original charges.

Nothing except a continued pattern of bribery and and corruption by a crooked politician who pattern of thievery is extreme even by Louisiana standards.

As Democrats try to paint Republicans as the party of corruption they have yet to expel Jefferson from their midst — adding to the feeling that neither party can take the high road when it comes to honesty and integrity.
