Goodnight Mr. Jefferson

So much for the cloak of protection.

A federal judge on Monday upheld the FBI’s unprecedented raid of a congressional office, saying that barring searches of lawmakers’ offices would turn Capitol Hill into “a taxpayer-subsidized sanctuary for crime.”

Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan rejected requests from lawmakers and Rep. William Jefferson to return material seized by the FBI in a May 20-21 search of Jefferson’s office.

Ever so once-in-a-while, you come across a rational judge who believes in the rule of law. How refreshing! So, I wonder when we’ll hear from the CBC on this ruling? I can’t wait to hear what they’ll say about this. Better yet, when will Mr. Billy do the perp walk?
