Amid the chaos and confusion that engulfed New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina struck, a congressman used National Guard troops to check on his property and rescue his personal belongings — even while New Orleans residents were trying to get rescued from rooftops, ABC News has learned. On Sept. 2 — five days after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast — Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., who represents New Orleans and is a senior member of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, was allowed through the military blockades set up around the city to reach the Superdome, where thousands of evacuees had been taken.This clown comandeered a truck and six men to drive him around "his district". In fact they went to his house and parked on the front lawn so he wouldn't have to wade through the water going in. Of course the truck got stuck (flooded lawn = mud, genius). He ended up wasting the time of a rescue helicopter and another 5 ton to get the first one unstuck during the peak of the rescue effort. All that so he could gather up a laptop and a large box of unspecified items.
This same man has been raging away at George Bush for the tardy federal response to the flood.
Kinda makes you wonder how they manage to walk in a straight line, being so crooked like that.
