House democrats violate their own rules by not coming to the defense of Rep. William Jefferson before he was found guilty of anything. The author doesn't feels that that the democratic house rules would have been applied and that other democrats would have come to his aide had he been white.

Crass political opportunism resulted in outright racism June 16 when Democratic Party leaders violated their own rules and precedent to oust Rep. William Jefferson from a key position on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.

Jefferson, whose Capitol Hill office had been raided on May 20 in an unprecedented, unconstitutional police-state act by the FBI, has been accused of bribery by that racist, repressive agency but not charged.

Democratic Party rules and precedent require that no representative be forcibly removed from a special committee before being indicted. Jefferson, the first African American from Louisiana to be elected to the House since Black Reconstruction, is also the first Democratic Party representative to be involuntarily removed from a committee position by the party. A vote by the 50-member Democratic Party Steering Committee set the stage for a full caucus vote of 99-58 to remove Jefferson, leading to the full House vote that formally removed him.

It seems that we have plenty of racism to go around. With the the history of Robert Byrd and others, one has to wonder why most blacks vote for democrat candidates.
