NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - A U.S. congressman from Louisiana, under investigation by the FBI after they found $90,000 in cash in his freezer, was endorsed by New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on Saturday and vowed that allegations of bribery would not hurt his re-election campaign.
"I have been effective, and I will continue to be," Democratic Rep. William Jefferson said as he opened his campaign for re-election in November 7 congressional election.

Does anyone think William Jefferson, Democrat Louisiana will be indicted before Nov election?
Jefferson and Nagin...two nuts in the Chocolate City.
Lucky for him, he wasn't caught doing anything really bad, like sending inappropriate e-mails to congressional pages. The Democrats would certainly be on his case for something like that.
Can anyone say "Tom Delay". That ol' double standard is doing just fine these days!
And I think the f.b.i. should check in Nagins freezer.
"Is the House Ethics Committtee investigating William Jefferson, Democrat Louisiana?
Does anyone think William Jefferson, Democrat Louisiana will be indicted before Nov election?"
I do....before the Nov. election of say 2020!!!!!
cold cash jefferson is a lib/dem and product of affirmative action...no lib/dem will ever investigate a crime perpertrated by one of their own...they just will investigate porn emails from republicans who resign in disgrace!!!!
after all...bella pelosi will be cleaning up the republican swamp & culture of corruption!!!
Guilty but effective. Is that kinda like - fake but accurate?
The members of The Democrat Crime Syndicate and their enablers continue their assault on truth, freedom and life.
Chocolate is thicker than blood....
For me, this is proof positive that nothing has changed over there. Hell will freeze over before I ever spend another penny in N.O.
That's so true, RR.
Translated from the Cajun/Creole, Jefferson actually said:
" This is racism---pure and simple. I am totally innocent. Look, I had 90 large ones in my freezer because, as a compassionate and tolerant Democrat, I was helping out a distinguished foreign dignitary."
"What happened was I got an email from Nigerian General Kachinga Cheatchusuckah, who had a problem. When Gen Cheatchusuckah transfers Idi Amin's secret Ugandan gold reserves from a Swiss bank vault to a refrigerated truck I leased, it will all make sense."
