human events online and chris field published erroneous information on their website about the fbi search of us congressman william jefferson's congressional office. their article implies that the often mentioned $90,000 [eur 70,535.71] found at congressman jefferson's home in a freezer back in august 2005 was discovered in this weekends search. an email from wst to mr. field has not been returned.

cnn's take
In a 95-page affidavit used to obtain a warrant for the office search, investigators stated that an August 2005 search of Democratic Rep. William Jefferson's home turned up the cash sum in a freezer.

your story about rep jefferson at this url:

is incorrect in that you write: "Nevermind that the search found cash wrapped in foil and hidden in the congressman’s freezer."
the foil wrapped cash was found in a search of rep jefferson's home and not at his office as your story implies.
