Crook Endorses Obamessiah

First the Reverend Wright thing, then the Tony Rezko thing, then the Jimmy Carter endorsement, now a nod from William “cold cash” Jefferson (D-Frigidaire).

The hits just keep on coming:

On a day that Sen. Barack Obama moved closer to clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, embattled Rep. William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, Tuesday became the first of Louisiana’s four Democratic congressional members to back his candidacy.

If you don’t remember, this is the same Jefferson (rapper name “Ice-J”) who was videotaped accepting a $100,000 bribe from an FBI informant. Jefferson’s home was raided, and $90,000 was found in his freezer (I guess the other $10,000 went for fish sticks, ice cream and popsicles). And he was still re-elected by Louisiana voters!

Jesus believed in hanging out with the sinners. In the case of this modern-day Jesus, the sinners believe in hanging out with the Obamessiah. I wonder why that is.
