Cold cash

I don’t know why the FBI is making a big deal about Representative William Jefferson and his methods of storing money:

All but $10,000 was recovered on Aug. 3 when the FBI searched Jefferson's home in Washington. The money was stuffed in his freezer, wrapped in $10,000 packs and concealed in food containers and aluminum foil.
Nothing suspicious about that at all! (There goes the “culture of corruption” meme.)

It has always been my experience that one can get a better deal for 'cold cash'. Perhaps the Honorable (do they still get called that if they do time for corruption?) Congressman Jefferson is just a canny buyer.

Must be a conspiracy by the white man. If he's in a minority-majority district, all he has to do is say that and he'll get 92% of the vote.

It seems a really weird place to hide money... though, if it was a LOT of money, he may have been thinking that the freezer would be fire proof... sort of a really *big* fire resistant documents box.

Not that it matters. He's still psycho, right?

Mmm, actual conservative positions. Remember those?
