Federal Judge Repudiates Hastertian Hubris

Congress has a long history of exempting itself from the laws that it passes, but a federal judge today told William Jefferson, Dennis Hastert, and other congressional leaders drunk on the arrogance of power, that they are not exempt from law enforcement. Hastert and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who rarely agree on anything, suddenly found common cause in the notion that congressmen are not subject to the same law enforcement mechanisms as everyone else in the United States. However, Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan, interrupting their passionate rendition of Kumbaya, told them that election to Congress does not convey the right to turn the nation's capitol into "a taxpayer-subsidized sanctuary for crime."
