CBS News is calling the race between indicted Democrat Representative from Louisiana, William Jefferson and politcal newcomer, Anh “Joseph” Cao, a Republican Vietnamese-American, for Cao.

Democrat Jefferson was indicted after he was discovered to be hiding $90,000 in bribe money in his freezer. Democrat Jefferson was also reported to have diverted a Military rescue crew to his home during rescue efforts after Hurricane Katrina, to retreive personal items of his.

Even though under indictment, Democrat Party leadership allowed Democrat Jefferson to retain his seat in the House of Representatives.

The election of Cao, in a predominant African-American Democrat stronghold, denies Democrat Jefferson a tenth term in the United States House of Representatives. Cao is the first Vietnamese-American that will serve in Congress.

CBS News earlier reported that Democrat Jefferson is likely to face trial on the “16-count indictment charging him with taking bribes, laundering money and misusing his congressional office for business dealings in Africa.”

One crooked Democrat gone, several more hopefully to follow.

  1. The election was one of two in Louisiana postponed because of Hurricane Gustav.
    In western Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District, Republican physician John Fleming defeated Democratic district attorney Paul Carmouche in a very close race to replace U.S. Rep. Jim McCrery, a 10-term Republican who is retiring. Fleming had 48 percent of the vote to Carmouche’s 47 percent. Two minor candidates split the remaining vote.

  2. Congratualations Mr. Cao. Crooks should not be rewarded with re-election whether they are Democrat Jackson or Replublicans Ted Stevens, Bob Ney, and Randy Cunningham.

    Congratiulations General Shinseki for your appointment to head the Veterans Administration. Truthtelling has its rewards.
