Voters in Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District have sent William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson home after nine terms in Congress. I've been watching this race carefully to see if Rep Jefferson would pull a "Marion Barry", and get reelected despite the lack of plausible explanation for the $90K in his freezer, the 16-count indictment, or the impending trial. He didn't.

Anh "Joseph" Cao is now the first Vietnamese-American elected to the Congress. Good for him, good for the voters in 2LA, and good for the American public.

I'm looking forward to the trial, as I'm sure William Jefferson is.
