Republicans upset about raid on Democrat's home?

So, they can fiercely guard their constitutional rights, but not ours? This is sickening.

Hastert demands FBI return documents

WASHINGTON - House Speaker [Republican] Dennis Hastert demanded Wednesday that the FBI surrender documents it seized and remove agents involved in the weekend raid of Rep. William Jefferson's office, under what lawmakers of both parties said were unconstitutional circumstances.

"We think those materials ought to be returned," Hastert said, adding that the FBI agents involved "ought to be frozen out of that (case) just for the sake of the constitutional aspects of it."

The Saturday night search of Jefferson's office on Capitol Hill brought Democrats and Republicans together in rare election-year accord, with both parties protesting agency conduct they said violated the Constitution's separation of powers doctrine.

Democrats, meanwhile, sought to get Jefferson to resign his seat on the House's most prestigious panel.

"In the interest of upholding the high ethical standard of the House Democratic Caucus, I am writing to request your immediate resignation from the Ways and Means Committee," wrote House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi in the one-sentence correspondence.

Don't you think this is all a little too ironic?

HEY CONGRESS, HOW ABOUT STICKING UP FOR US ONE IN A WHILE?
