Nancy Continues To Clean Up Congress

Nancy continues to reform her House to represent a less corrupt Capitol:

After being videotaped accepting a $100,000 cash bribe by the FBI and busted with $90,000 worth of loot in his freezer, Democratic Congressman William Jefferson--currently facing an ongoing federal corruption probe--is being awarded a seat on the House Homeland Security Committee.
Hat tip to the Political Pit Bull.

Just a reminder of Pelosi's attempts to clean up Congress: first she supported John Murtha for Majority Leader, and he would of gotten it to, if it weren't for that pesky video of him chomping at a bribe being dangled by an undercover FBI agent (posing as a sheik). Next Nancy wanted Alcee Hastings to lead the Intelligence committee, until there was an outcry from the public who were reminded by the right-wing media of Hastings past as a federal judge, impeached for accepting bribes.
