Corruption loses a key advocate

Rep. Jefferson was caught with $90,000 of cash in the freezer of his Washington home and indicted in 2007 on charges of receiving more than $500,000 in bribes.  Naturally, he won his party's nomination to run this year for re-election.  In a surprise upset, however, only 47% of his constituents in the Louisiana 2nd Congressional District (New Orleans) voted to send him back to congress.  50% voted for his Republican challenger, attorney Anh Cao.

PREVIOUSLY, the culture of corruption was discussed here and here.  Failure of Democrats to pay taxes is discussed here.  How to duy a congressman's support is explained here.
