REMOVING JEFFERSON FROM WAYS & MEANS -- "Last week, the steering committee of the Democratic Caucus voted to temporarily remove Jefferson from the Ways and Means Committee while federal investigators determine whether he broke the law while trying to help a Kentucky company launch a high-tech business in Africa."

This was a little-noticed, but significant, move to isolate Rep. Jefferson by members of his own party. I don't think any similar moves have been made against other members currently under investigation.
