In September, I listed William Jefferson as the #2 Democratic congressman that I did not wish to see re-elected. Tonight, Jefferson lost his re-election bid: With 79% of the vote in, CNN has called the election for his Republican opponent Anh Cao. This is a victory we can all celebrate. While I hate to cede any Congressional seat to a Republican, Jefferson was a corrupt shyster, indicted on 16 federal charges, stripped of his committee chairs, and an embarrassment to the Democratic caucus. As icing on the cake, Cao's election makes our Congress even more diverse: he will be the first Vietnamese-American elected to either House.
