Breaking: "Cold Cash" Jefferson Ousted!… Republican Cao Wins!


Amazing!… There’s going to be one less Corruptocrat in Congress next year.
Rep. William “Cold Cash” Jefferson lost his Congressional seat to Republican Anh “Joseph” Cao in Louisiana.

Anh “Joseph” Cao, a Vietnamese-American and a Republican, will be the first Vietnamese-American in Congress from a predominantly black and heavily Democratic district.
The AP reported, via Free Republic:

Voters in Louisiana have ousted indicted Democratic Rep. William Jefferson and sent a little-known Republican to Congress.

Unofficial results showed Republican attorney Anh “Joseph” Cao denying Jefferson a 10th term.

Republicans made an aggressive push to get rid of the 61-year-old incumbent, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of bribery, laundering money and misusing his congressional office.

Cao won a predominantly black and heavily Democratic district that covers most of New Orleans. He will become the first Vietnamese-American in Congress.

He came to the U.S. as a child after the fall of Saigon in 1975. He went on to earn degrees in philosophy, physics and law.

Turnout appeared low in the election delayed because of Hurricane Gustav.
