Ethics Committee Targets Jefferson

Before he could enter his not guilty plea to corruption charges, the House Ethics Committee has voted to expand its investigation of Rep William Jefferson (D-LA).

The Congressman was arraigned today on a 16-count corruption indictment handed down earlier in the week.

The committee hasn't mentioned expelling Rep Jefferson from the House -- though the House has passed a GOP-sponsored resolution calling on the Committee to report on the possibility of expulsion. (The Buffalo News)
