US - Democrat Jefferson's Re-Election Bid Has Party Fuming

Nice to see left wing NPR reporting this.

Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) is ensnared in a bribery investigation in which thousands of [FBI marked] dollars were found in his freezer. The FBI apparently has a video of him taking money, and several people have [been convicted after they] pled guilty in the case.

But Jefferson himself has not been charged with anything [yet] -- maintaining his innocence, he is running for re-election. His fellow Democrats are embarrassed, and the party in New Orleans has disowned him.

So why haven't the Democrats called for him to step down and if he doesn't kick him out of the party?
