Liberal media is cutting Jefferson slack

Published 2:32 pm Thursday, June 14, 2007

Any congressman with 200 years of prison possible, marked money in his freezer and about 18 counts of criminal charges would get hammered by all the media, right?

Not so fast, this is a Louisiana (New Orleans) Democrat.

They are special, very special.

So, unlike the Republicans, who have a rule against serving under indictment, the secular socialist Democrats, of course, have no such ethical rule (and never will).

Already the liberal media has began to try to change William Jefferson’s full diaper.

Every effort is being made to excuse an arrogant crook pretending to be a public servant.

This pains the Democrat party because to do the right thing for ethics means possible frowns from a solid bought-out group.

Never does the modern Democrat put the integrity of Congress or image of the country before raw power politics.

Just compare this to the Libby case or even the Berger case.

Liberal is … as liberal does.
