Ok, I am a little torqued off. I have been stewing about this Congressman Willaim Jefferson thing and I finally decided to speak up. Here is what I sent to my Congresscritter, Oberstar:

What is your postition on the investigation into the alleged crimes of Rep. William Jefferson? I want to know if you support the postion of the House leadership that maintain that Representatives have some "special" privileges that protect them from criminal investigations. Do you agree with the postition taken by Hastert and Pelosi, yes or no? I want an answer by email. If you do not reply I will have to assume you support this travesty.

And here is what I sent to Hastert:

Every American deserves an explanation from you and all other congressmen who object to the way the investigation into the crimes of William Jefferson is being conducted. I have been a Republican all my life, and I have been active in the party at various times, including convening precint caucuses. I will do everything in my power to see that no member of Congress that supports your position on this issue in any way is ever reelected to any position including dog catcher. Your actions show absolute disrespect for not only the Constitution but all law abiding Americans. You should immediately apoligize for this outrage and take whatever actions neccesary to accomodate this investigation. Your actions make me sick and break my heart. I fear for the future of this nation when the Speaker of the House of Representatives would advocate a position that Congressional Representatives of "the people" are not subject to the same laws as the people they supposedly represent. I don't expect to hear a reply since you have no interest in doing what is right. I hope you are defeated in the next election. You have done your nation great harm.

Of course I don't expect to hear anything from either of them. This goes way beyond party. Throw the whole bunch out!
