Embattled Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) was indicted a few hours ago on 16 different counts including allegations of racketeering, solicitation of bribes, honest services wire fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, violating the foreign corrupt practices act, and conspiracy.
The AP is reporting that the indictment “is 94 pages long and lists 16 alleged violations of federal law that could keep Jefferson in prison for up to 235 years, according to a Justice Department official who has seen the document.”
