William Jefferson (D-LA) on Homeland Security Panel?

Okay innocent until proven guilty, but Congressman William Jefferson (D-LA) has some very damaging evidence against him for bribery including $90,000 found in his freezer. I’m sure his narrow re-election was disheartening to Nancy Pelosi who has vowed to have a very ethical Congress. However, FoxNews.com has run two AP stories about Nancy Pelosi’s apparent plans to put William Jefferson on the Homeland Security panel, despite the fact that he is still under federal investigation for bribery. Because of hurricane response, that might make sense. But, should someone who may have been bribed recently be privy to important national security issues? The GOP has responded as noted in one of Fox’s stories. A search of CNN and MSNBC web sites turned up no such stories.
