Jefferson “Cash in the Freezer” Photos Emerge

The trial of William Jefferson, a nine term Congressman from Louisiana charged with soliciting bribes, racketeering, money laundering and violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, continues in the Eastern District of Virginia. The FCPA Blog has numerous posts on the case and the trial here.

Among other things, prosecutors have famously alleged that $90,000 wrapped in aluminum foil was found in Jefferson’s freezer during an FBI raid of Jefferson’s home. Today, photos of the cash, which was tucked inside containers of Pillsbury Pie Crust and Boca Burgers, were published on TPM.  For the full “freezer photo gallery,” visit TPM here (via Clusterstock).
