They note in this article that Nancy Pelosi is a Democrat, but only in the captions to the pictures that are on the sidebar do they mention Jefferson's party affliliation (and then only with a "D-LA"). They saw fit to attribute Pelosi when she speaks as if taking a tough stand against the offender. Never mind that the guy has been under investigation and was incontrovertibly caught with 90k in his freezer well before Pelosi appointed him to his Committee position:
"If these charges are proven true, they constitute an egregious and unacceptable abuse of public trust and power," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "Democrats are committed to upholding a high ethical standard and eliminating corruption and unethical behavior from the Congress."
But of course, when Duke Cunningham was convicted, you had only to get to the 8th sentence of the AP article to find out unequivocally that he was a Republican.
