Cold Hard Cash

A recent topical IM conversation:

M.: lol. William Jefferson has $100K in his freezer.
Dennis!: "cold hard cash"?
M.: indeed.
M.: although it was hot. bribery money.
Dennis!: perhaps he needed to cool it down.
Dennis!: he was getting ready to throw it in the machine -- you know, to "launder" it.
M.: he had it in ziploc containers.
M.: to keep it fresh.
M.: you know how greens spoil.
Dennis!: they get all wilty and suffer from freezer burn.
M.: You'd think someone so good at cooking the books would know that.

Yuk yuk yuk.

** Update: Thanks again, Wonkette!

I read that story in the paper. They have the guy on tape (video & audio), and he denies ALL wrongdoing. I'm sure there are some decent people serving in political office, but I think most of them, like this guy, are really dirty.

At this point, his best defense would probably be to say he was on Ambien and that he was "sleep-bribing".
