Agents search homes of Louisiana congressman

CNN (AP) reports that the New Orleans and Louisiana homes of Democratic Rep. William Jefferson were searched by the FBI on Wednesday. The Justice Department would not give any details on what they were looking for but we do know that he has been implicated in matters related the mail-fraud conviction against his brother-in-law Alan Green, a former state judge.

Again in the spirit of fairness and to counter the blow received by this poor misguided Democrat, the AP has chosen to end the story this way:

In June, the FBI searched the yacht and California home of U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, whose business dealings are under investigation by a federal grand jury in San Diego.

The inquiry began after reports that Cunningham sold his house to a defense contractor who quickly put it back on the market and later sold it at a $700,000 loss.

Cunningham, a Republican, has denied any wrongdoing but has announced he will not seek re-election to a ninth term next year.

No relation to the Jefferson story whatsoever. Just a reminder that "Republicans are rats too, so there!"
