JEFFERSON SEARCH UPHELD -- "'"Congressman Jefferson's interpretation of the speech or debate privilege would have the effect of converting every congressional office into a taxpayer-subsidized sanctuary for crime,' said [federal district judge Thomas] Hogan, who had approved the search warrant for the May 20-21 search of Jefferson's office."

The case will no doubt move on to the appeals court.
