Jefferson May Review Seized Papers

Saturday, July 29, 2006
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled yesterday that prosecutors may not examine documents seized from Rep. William J. Jefferson's Capitol Hill office until the congressman has a chance to review them for privileged legislative materials.

A three-judge panel consisting of judges David B. Sentelle, Janice Rogers Brown and Thomas B. Griffith ordered the Justice Department to copy the seized materials and show them to Jefferson. The Louisiana Democrat will have two days to go through them and submit any challenges.

Damn it, I missed that sale. Where can I get a freezer with $90,000 in it? Some people have all the luck.

A freezer? I thought that's what the crisper drawer is for.

Don't know about the freezer, but you can do pretty well buying cabinets at Home Depot in Massachusetts. Link.
