With Democrats finally making some headway against the Republican juggernaut, Congressman Jefferson needs not to be a distraction. The Democratic Party seems to be getting some play with the American people with the “culture of corruption” phrase. Although Congressman Jefferson (Democrat from Louisiana) has not been found guilty of anything, it’s clear that he is under FBI investigation. The Democratic Party clearly does not need a scandal to divert any attention away from the Republicans. The honorable thing for Congressman Jefferson to do would be to resign.
