Rep. Jefferson’s Staffers Subpoenaed

Four staffers for Rep. William Jefferson will have to take a field trip to Alexandria, Va., where their boss will stand trial on public corruption charges. It’s a trip, in all likelihood, they’d rather not take.

New Orleans Times-Picayune
WASHINGTON — Four staffers for Rep. William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, have been subpoenaed to testify at his corruption trial, scheduled to begin Dec. 2.
Word of the subpoenas came as a result of letters sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. House rules require staffers to send written notification when they are summoned to be a witness in a court proceeding. The letters were placed into the Congressional Record late Friday.
The four staffers are Stephanie Butler, Jefferson’s district director; Roberta Hopkins, his acting chief of staff; Angelle Kwemo, his legislative director; and Erica Edwards-Jones, an aide in his West Bank office.
