Bye Bye, Cold Cash
We won’t have William Jefferson (D-LA) to kick around anymore
Nine-term Democratic Rep. William Jefferson, who has been battling scandals and a federal indictment for the past three years, lost his bid for re-election on Saturday.
Holy cow, CNN actually mentioned Cold Cash is a democrat. That musta hurt!
Republican challenger Anh “Joseph” Cao, an attorney and community organizer, defeated Jefferson in the 2nd Congressional district race. He will become the first Vietnamese-American elected to Congress.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Cao had almost 50 percent of the vote to Jefferson’s 47 percent.
Now we can get on with his trial, which looks to have been pushed to sometime early in 2009.
