Dems kick Jefferson off Ways and Means.

The Democratic Caucus of the United States House of Representatives on Thursday voted 99-58 to temporarily remove U.S. House of Representative William Bill Jefferson from the House Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. However, the full removal will require a full vote of the members of the House of Representatives. Congressman Jefferson’s district is primarily from New Orleans. So far and up until the vote, Congressman Jefferson has refused to step down.
