CNN reports:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — On the same day that the 110th Democratic-led Congress convenes with a plan to immediately pass lobbyist and ethics reforms, the Congressional Black Caucus Thursday gave a standing ovation to Rep. William Jefferson, the Louisiana Democrat who faces an FBI probe into bribery allegations.

“The haters… and negative nabobs…the people who spoke against him couldn’t prevail against the people who spoke for him,” Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, master of ceremonies for the CBC’s celebratory event, said Thursday morning.

Just when you thought the moral bankruptcy of the CBC couldn’t get any worse. Of course, what can you expect from an group of Democrats who have repeatedly aligned themselves with anti-war/military hate-Bush wacko Michael Moore, even giving him an award during the 2004 Democratic National Convention?

Hat tip: Allah

    Again I say: Are we surprised?

    It will be interesting to see how the morality of the highly ethical new congress will deal with such things, because you know this is just the beginning.

    Doesn’t he sound like a good little goose stepper. – Lorica

    I want to see the actual “Get Out of Jail” card Jefferson must have. Do all Congresscritters get one, or only members of the CBC?
