    Indicted: 4th District Assessor Betty Jefferson
    by Gordon Russell and David Hammer, The Times-Picayune
    Wednesday June 04, 2008, 5:24 PM

    U.S. Attorney Jim Letten announced this afternoon that 4th District Assessor Betty Jefferson, an elder sister of U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, has been indicted on a host of fraud-related charges by a federal grand jury. Also indicted were Jefferson's daughter, Angela Coleman, and her brother, the previously indicted Mose Jefferson.

    The charges are the culmination of a probe into charities run by members of the Jefferson family and their allies. In a rare move, the FBI announced it was investigating the nonprofits after a 2006 Times-Picayune story revealed apparent self-dealing at them.

    The newspaper's report noted that former City Councilwoman and state Rep. Renee Gill Pratt, a protege of the congressman, and former state Rep. Jalila Jefferson-Bullock, one of his five daughters, had steered millions of dollars over the course of a decade or so to three charities associated with the family: Care Unlimited, Orleans Metropolitan Housing and Central City Adult Education.
    And the beat goes on...

    Congressman Jefferson is currently under federal indictment, facing 16 charges of public corruption. He is awaiting a trial date in Virginia.

    Mose Jefferson also is already under federal indictment. In April, a grand jury charged him with bribing former Orleans Parish School Board president Ellenese Brooks-Simms in exchange for her support for a computer-based algebra curriculum he was peddling.

    Jefferson is a super-delegate for Obama. And our brave Sen. Mary Landrieu finally made up her mind to support Obama yesterday!!
