Democrats Remove Jefferson From Committee

Published by at 10:01 pm under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

In an Alice In Wonderland move the Democrat House caucus voted to remove William Jefferson from his seat on a powerful committee:

With members of the Congressional Black Caucus crying double standard, House Democrats met behind closed doors Thursday and voted to strip Rep. William Jefferson of his seat on the Ways and Means Committee.

The move was led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, who already had asked Jefferson to step down voluntarily, a request her embattled counterpart rebuffed.

The vote was 99-58 against Jefferson.  No word yet on whether Hastert will challenge the right of a caucus to strip a member of his committee seat based on a unconstitutional search.

    Did I misunderstand you? Your last words in this news item states that this was “based on a unconstitutional search”. Do you really believe this was that even though “The FBI followed procedure and the Congressional lawyers held back evidence. The FBI then got a search warrant from a judge”. I don’t understand. The man is suspected of committing a felony; he refused to give evidence; his office and records are Not above the law (or he could keep illegal drugs there and we couldn’t investigate, etc. ).

    Sorry, my tongue was firmly in my cheek, you just couldn’t see that from where you are sitting.

    Ha Ha Ha.
    Wonder if they will replace him with another “Minority”, to show that they are for “Affirmative Action”. Probably the pressure is already on from the CBC, they are already calling “Racism”.
    Good to see the Dems are still scaming there own with the “Racist card”.
