The Washington Post
goes front page
Monday morning with a new story on William Jefferson (D-LA). There's nothing new here, no - except that reporters Jonathan Weisman and Allan Lengel would like to announce to the world that they've finally got their mind around the Jefferson case.
Everybody knows why Jefferson's in trouble (and about the $90,000 in the freezer). But over the past couple months, I've read a number of different attempts by journalists to explain the facts, and usually my head is spinning by the third paragraph.
Here's why: the case involves several deals "involving at least seven business entities, nearly a dozen family members [his wife, two brothers, five daughters and two sons-in-law] and hundreds of thousands of dollars sloshing through bank accounts."
Well, the Post
does the best job I've seen so far this morning. So if you're curious about what the case is against Jefferson, give it a read
