Opening The Files: 06/05/07

Out of the Freezer and into the Cooler.

Okay, so I stole that line from a recollection of an old Dragnet episode from John's place but it is a rather apt description of what's happened to Rep. William Jefferson. Seems the Congressman made famous for keeping $90,000 in his freezer has been indicted on 16 counts including bribery, corruption and racketeering. I'm sure the Rovians are salivating at the prospect of using this development to suggestion some sort of equivalence between the two parties. As if one indicted Democrat is equal to the slew of GOPers now facing investigation or indictment. So really, such claims don't hold that much water.

Well, maybe if it's frozen. Perhaps Rep. Jefferson can recommend a good freezer dealer.

Gordon gives us some tips on where best to hide one's ill-gotten cold cash.

FOX News appears to be getting an early start on the "they're all the same" meme.

Matthew O'Keefe reminds us that corruption is wrong, no matter which party does it.

And Cernig glances over the pixel pundits opining on this and notes the disparity with which the two parties treat the corrupted in the midst. Fellow hogger Fester says now is as good a time as any for the Dems to keep that promise of draining the swamp.
