Pelosi to Jefferson: Resign from Committee

Views

A backstage nudge didn’t work with Jefferson, so Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has gone public:

May 24, 2006

Congressman William J. Jefferson
2113 Rayburn House Office Building
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Congressman Jefferson:

In the interest of upholding the high ethical standard of the House Democratic Caucus, I am writing to request your immediate resignation from the Ways and Means Committee.

Sincerely,

Nancy Pelosi
Democratic Leader

Update: Jefferson says no. From Roll Call:

“I have received your letter of this date requesting my immediate resignation from the Ways and Means Committee. With respect, I decline to do so,” Jefferson said.
