Congressman Jefferson should resign

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.

  1. I also think Congressman Jefferson should resign so that everyone can get back to more important issues. Issues like, Gen. Hayden, the war, the economy, health care, education, etc.

    It seems kind of strange that things that should be investigated and discussed, get swept under the rug and we put our focus on things that are not less important but don’t necessarily need to be put in the limelight so that we can just cover up more important issues.

  2. Also, Dem’s must present a clear alternative to the way that the R’s have run things. It must be cystal clear. You don’t want one voter going to the polls in November and saying that R’s and Dem’s are corrupt. The Dem’s must clean house. If you Ajax (of Comet or Mr. Clean or whatever) clean then you can’t help us win back the House/Senate.

  3. Congressman Jefferson is innocent until proven guilty.
    We should not put up with rightwing ideologues in the
    press who USE this issue to discredit Democrats. Mr.
    Jefferson is not an important issue compared to the
    scandals of the Bush/Cheney administration and the
    republican congress and senate. We have to keep pounding
    away with letters to editors, TV and radio news divisions
    that Mr. Jefferson does not deserve negative treatment out
    of proportion to the Bush/Cheney crooks and their scandals.
    Best,
    Arvin
