Booting the Bum Out 
The people of Louisiana's Second District have given Cold Cash William Jefferson the boot.

From CNN

Funny how Jefferson, who has a litany of charges against him, just never seemed to get the amount of press that Mark Foley did.

Update NYTimes archive search:

"William Jefferson" -clinton: 364 hits
"Mark Foley": 5110 hits

Do it for the past 12 months:

"Mark Foley": 3350
"William Jefferson" -clinton: 12

All the news that's fit to outnumber 279:1 in print.

To be fair, "bill jefferson" yields 101 stories over the last 12 months, but that's still roughly 33:1.
