Congressman Jefferson wants his trial moved

Congressman Jefferson wants his trial moved out of Virginia because he assumes that he won't receive a fair trial. Mr. Jefferson wants to insult the black race by assuming that since he is a black corrupt politician, black people will condone his behavior. It is time we as a people stand united against corrupt politicians, like Congressman Jefferson, and let them know that we will no longer tolerate corrupt politicians in the big easy. Additionally, his legal argument has no merit.

Jefferson's legal team amended its earlier claim that the government orchestrated a sting operation in the heavily white suburbs of northern Virginia to avoid trying an African-American defendant in the majority black city of Washington, D.C.

Race did not play a factor in the government's sting operation because he was the one who accepted the bribe. It is time for him to stand up for once and be a man. Admit to his guilt and accept responsibility for his actions.
