More Jefferson indictments

Rep. William Jefferson (D-Louisiana) was indicted on 16 corruption charges last June. Bizarrely, he remains in the House of Representatives, and was only stripped of his committee chairmanship by a vote of 99-58.

Yesterday, the U.S. Attorney announced indictments of his sister Betty, his brother Mose, and his niece Angela. Betty Jefferson is an elected tax assessor in New Orleans. Mose Jefferson was already under indictment for bribery.

BONUS: Name that party! If you know what party any of these people belong to, you didn’t learn it from the Times-Picayune story I linked. (Okay, I’ll tell you: Betty Jefferson is a Democrat too.)
