Pelosi Gives Jefferson Homeland Security Position Despite Security Risk

Freezer full of cash? Check. Vote for U.S. surrender in Iraq? Check. Result? Censure? Impeachment? Nope -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rewards Congressman Bill Jefferson with a coveted position on the House Homeland Security panel. "But he's not a security risk!"

Rep. Peter King responds:

"It sends a terrible message," said King, R-N.Y. "They couldn't trust him to write tax policy, so why should he be given access to our nation's top secrets or making policy for national defense?"

"Members of the committee have access to intelligence secrets, plots here in the country, overseas, and people under suspicion. This shows how unimportant the Democrats think homeland security is," King said.
