Illegal to give, illegal to receive?
Let's see, if a guy goes to prison for bribing a congressmen, what about the congressman?
A Kentucky technology executive pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to bribing a congressman in charges stemming from an investigation of a Louisiana House member.Ah, yes, Nancy Pelosi, please tell us one more time about that awful "culture of corruption"!
Vernon Jackson, 53, chief executive of Louisville-based iGate Inc., pleaded guilty to bribery of a public official and conspiracy to bribe a public official.
The congressman was not identified in court documents or during Wednesday’s plea hearing, but documents make clear that the congressman whom Jackson admits bribing is Rep. William Jefferson, a Democrat who represents New Orleans.
Jackson faces a maximum of 20 years when he is sentenced July 27. The plea agreement calls for a sentencing guideline range not to exceed seven to nine years, but the judge is not bound by those guidelines.
