Nothing illegal about putting money in the freezer.

On the other hand it is illegal to make contradictory trades on cattle futures and place only the winning trades in the account of a politician's wife in order that her Attorney General husband doesn't enforce water pollution laws.

The CBC must really have Pelosi's nylons wrapped tight. This is the sort of stunt that will cost them seats next time, and if Jefferson is ever indicted, it might cost Pelosi the speakership before then.

This was reported by CQ Politics. If it isn't reported tonight on ABC, NBC, CBSbs, America will not know, nor be aware of this. Your tax money at work. Nuttin's gonna happen.

And I like the way these "Red State"/"Blue Dog" Democrats all voted as the leadership directed today. Anyone who thought they would be "an independent voice of moderation" was a fool.
