WASHINGTON, June 4 LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire — Speaker Nancy Pelosi
issued the following statement today following the federal indictment of
Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana:

“The charges in the indictment against Congressman Jefferson are
extremely serious. While Mr. Jefferson, just as any other citizen, must be considered innocent until proven guilty, if these charges are proven true, they constitute an egregious and unacceptable abuse of public trust and power.

“As we have demonstrated in implementing tough ethics reforms and
passing tough lobbying reforms already this year, Democrats are committed
to upholding a high ethical standard and eliminating corruption and
unethical behavior from the Congress.”
