Icing the news with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• A federal appeals court ruled the Justice Department went too far when raiding the office of Senator William Jefferson last year. Officials violated the Constitution by poring over legislative documents during the corruption investigation. The court ordered the Justice Department to return any legislative documents. While pursuing international bribery charges against the senator, the investigation also uncovered $90,000 in Jefferson’s freezer. Guess investigators should have been content raiding the man’s refrigerator.
• MSNBC and radio station WFAN will likely split the former Don Imus empire, respectively assigning the hosting duties to Joe Scarborough and Boomer Esiason. Meanwhile, the fired shock jock continues his contract negotiations and future dealings, bound to net more loot than Senator William Jefferson’s freezer could accommodate.
