"Jefferson's going down."
But this 45 day sealing of his records is like a gift from God. For 45 addtional days, Wm Jefferson (D), Louisiana will twist in the wind while EVERYBODY knows he is guilty as sin and Rush et. al. get to do frequent updates of the case against Wm. Jefferson, (D) Louisiana. Additionally, the mid term erections are 5+ months away. The records of Wm. Jefferson, (D) Louisiana will be unsealed 3 1/2 months prior to the erections - then everything goes back into motion. Shop for popcorn before it gets too late.
You can see the hands of Karl Rove around this entire episode. Nothing really gets settled, and the whole mess will reopen in mid-September...which will get front-page results. And if Nancy or Denny want to play hardball...then resignations of 3 or 4 characters from the FBI/Attorney General's office will set another firestorm into play. Nothing positive comes out of this mess except the administration doing the legal and ethical thing. And the politicans look like corrupt car dealers from Moline, Ill.
