Congressman Jefferson Indicted on Bribery Charges

Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., was indicted Monday on 16 counts related to a long-running bribery investigation on counts including racketeering, obstruction of justice and conspiracy.

The indictment was handed up in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. A press conference is scheduled for for later Monday in Washington to discuss the case.

The 94-page indictment is more than an inch thick, and Jefferson could face a maximum prison term of more than 230 years.

Well, it sure took ’em long enough!  I wonder if his freezer has grown any more cash?
