Corruption only Democrats can love...

Let's start with...

Representative Alcee L. Hastings, Dhimmicrat, Florida 23rd. Congressional District.

Alcee's an impeached federal judge now serving as a United States Representative. He holds the distinction of being one of six federal judges in the history of the United States who's been removed from office by the United States Senate.

He was impeached in 1988 by a Dhimmicrat controlled House of Representatives for accepting a $150,000.00 bribe and committing perjury regarding his testimony against Frank and Thomas Romano during their racketeering case. The vote was a whopping 413-3 in favor of impeachment.

In 1989 he was then convicted by the United States Senate of the first article levied against him and he was removed from office. The vote on the first article was 69 for and 26 opposed, five votes more than the two-thirds majority of those present that's needed to convict. The first article accused the judge of conspiracy. A conviction on any single article was enough to remove him from office.

According to Hastings he's simply an innocent victim of politics.

Hasting's "alleged" co-conspirator, William Borders refused to testify against Hastings and was sent to jail for contempt. He was later pardoned by slick Willy Bill Clinton, dhimmicrat.

One of Willy's many controversial pardons.

No corruption here though! Yeah, right.

Now let's chat about Representative William J. Jefferson, Dhimmicrat, Louisiana 2nd. Congressional District.

...not to be confused with William Jefferson Clinton, aka: Slick Willy, aka: Whitewater Bill, aka: Monica's Main Man... ah, you get the idea.

Don't confuse William Jefferson with the ex prez though there are many, many similarities.

Nope. William J. Jefferson has the distinction of being the first and only sitting member of congress to have ever had their congressional office "raided" by the FBI... or any law enforcement agency for that matter.

In a nutshell, here's what's going on with Mr. Jefferson...

On July 30, 2005 Jefferson was videotaped by the FBI receiving $100,000 worth of $100 bills in a leather briefcase at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Jefferson told an investor, Lori Mody, who was wearing a wire that he would need to give Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar $500,000 "as a motivating factor" to ensure they obtained contracts for a Kentucky based internet company (iGate) and Mody's company in Nigeria.

Shortly after the exchange of money, on August 3, 2005 FBI agents raided Jefferson's Washington D.C. home and found $90,000 of the cash in the freezer, in $10,000 increments wrapped in aluminum foil and stuffed inside frozen-food containers... lasagna style!

The serial numbers found on the currency in the freezer matched those serial numbers of funds that were previously recorded by the FBI and subsequently given to the informant.

On May 20, 2006 agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided and searched the congressional office of William J. Jefferson as part of an investigation regarding an ongoing corruption probe.

Some of the allegations used by the FBI in their affidavit to secure the search warrant included...

- Jefferson being videotaped as he received a stock certificate from Mody for a company set up in Nigeria to promote iGate's technology. On the tape Jefferson predicted the deal would generate $200 million annually after five years.

- Jefferson telling Mody that he wants a similar financial stake in the business in Ghana.

- Jefferson sought $10 million in financing from Mody to take over iGate and install "confidants" on the new board. In two payments, Mody wired $89,225 to the ANJ Group LLC, a company controlled by Jefferson's family.

- Jefferson lent $4,800 of the money Mody gave him to an unnamed congressional aide. Another $4,900 was given back to the FBI by one of Jefferson's attorneys.

- The FBI claims it has uncovered "at least seven other schemes in which Jefferson sought things of value in return for his official acts

Now, this really pissed off those congressional folks who believe they're above the law.

There's still a turf war going on over the very legal and fruitful FBI search and recovery of evidence.

Jefferson claims he's innocent. Another victim of entrapment, of police running amok. An innocent victim of vile politics.

Yet one of his former aides, Brett M. Pfeffer tells it a bit differently. Particularly after he's plead guilty to federal bribery charges.

Ah, yeah. We can go on with the dhimmicrat corruption parade but I'm tiring of it for now. I'll pick up on Jerry Stubbs and his past "diddlings", Barney Frank and his alleged business association with Steve Gobie, a male escort whom Frank had befriended, the 52nd. Governor of New Jersey, Jim McGreevey and his closeted sexual exploits, Fat Jack Murtha and his "Let's talk about this later" tape and many, many more dhimmicrats from Bill and Hill on down.

Where doesn't the corruption lead us?
