Pelosi Statement on Indictment of Congressman William Jefferson
Washington, D.C.—Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today following the federal indictment of Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana:
“The charges in the indictment against Congressman Jefferson are extremely serious. While Mr. Jefferson, just as any other citizen, must be considered innocent until proven guilty, if these charges are proven true, they constitute an egregious and unacceptable abuse of public trust and power....
Interesting, considering she didn't sound so quick to presume innocence until proven guilty in regards to Tom Delay, Mark Foley, or any other under-fire Republicans. Typical.
