    ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Former Democratic Congressman William Jefferson was found guilty of 11 of 16 corruption charges today by a federal jury.

    The jury of eight women and four men returned a guilty verdict following five days of deliberation.

    In the 16-count indictment, Jefferson was charged with soliciting bribes and other crimes for a series of schemes in which he helped American businesses broker deals in West African in exchange for payments or financial considerations to companies controlled by members of his family, including his brother Mose, his wife, Andrea, their five daughters and a son-in-law.



    This is a great day for us in New Orleans. I think I'll have a beer.
    Now, if ya'll can just burn Nagin, you'll be 2-for-2.

    They had to give one up. There won't be any racism accusations on this one.

    I have to admit that I'm a little surprised.

    In this state I'd put it at about 2:1.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
