Time for William Jefferson to go

The runoff election in Louisiana is set for December 9th between Democrats William Jefferson and Karen Carter. The Louisiana Democratic Party, and the blogs Daily Kos, Swing State Project, and MyDD have all endorsed Carter.

Jefferson has been plagued by ethical problems, exemplified by his being investigated by the FBI for allegedly receiving bribes of $100,000 and $400,000. Jefferson has refused to resign, and is now seeking to retain the seat. Now that corrupt Republicans like Tom DeLay, Randy "Duke" Cunningham, and Bob Ney are out, Louisiana Democrats in Jefferson's district should take a stand on ethics and boot Jefferson out.
