Zack Space Needs A Clue
By: Mark W Adams

That's strike two for you Congressman Space, in my book anyway. You first made my list for voting to continue funding the surge escalation.

Now, you are the exception that proves the rule. The rule was: unlike the GOP who hypocritically defended some of the most blatently corrupt members of their fraternity -- no democrat defended Representative William Jefferson.

Zack is feebly acting as an apologist for the Louisiana Congressman who had all that hard, COLD cash in his freezer.

Rep. Space changes position on Jefferson resignation

Per the Columbus Dispatch:

Rep. Zack Space (D-Ohio) has not joined several of his freshman colleagues calling on indicted Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.) to step down, even though he called for Jefferson’s resignation as a House candidate.

As a candidate in May 2006, Space said: “Bill Jefferson and Bob Ney are the poster children for Washington's culture of corruption that is costing American families. I urge both to resign their seats in Congress so we can begin a new day and a new way of doing things.”

But yesterday, Space told the Dispatch that ”I do not believe that we have legal standing to force Mr. Jefferson to resign at this moment.”
Zack .... Buddy....

Here's your hint. The Constitution, Art.I Sec. 5: Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members...

That's why no Congressperson or Senator have been impeached -- they've just been voted out by a simple majority of the house they sit in -- not the supermajority of both houses required by impeachment.

Go back to school Zack, and while you're at it, get on the right side of this issue. Kick that bum out.
