Say it's not true.

Reports are that an African-American Democratic Congressman from New Orleans has been caught allegedly scamming a Virginia businesswoman. Rep. William Jefferson, under investigation for bribery, was videotaped accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded.

It is also reported by AP that FBI agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer, according to a court document released Sunday. If this story is true this Congressman has disgraced himself, family, his congressional district, and the Congressional Black Cacus.
