William Jefferson, Part III

As I wrote about on Friday, Sept. 2 and Tuesday, Sept. 6, there are more state politicians than federal to blame for Hurricane Katrina's death toll.

ABC News is reporting that "amid the chaos and confusion that engulfed New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina struck, a local congressman used National Guard troops to check on his property and rescue his personal belongings — even while New Orleans residents were trying to get rescued from rooftops ..."

It seems that on Friday, Sept. 2, Rep. William Jefferson (Dist. 3, New Orleans) allegedly utilized military personnel and equipment to rescue personal items from his home. The ABC News article contains the specifics and concludes with why Jefferson is no stranger to trouble.
