The Jeffersons – An All in the Family Business

It is always fascinating when siblings become immersed in similar or rival business ventures. You often wonder how competitive they are amongst themselves and just how the competition affects their relationship. When I recently read about Mose Jefferson’s business dealings, the elder brother of Democrat Congressman William Jefferson, it made me think- wouldn’t it be interesting to be a fly on the ceiling listening to their family gathering conversations. Mose, like brother William, has come under heavy legal scrutiny. Mose Jefferson has been charged with bribery, money laundering and obstruction of justice over some of his business dealings. Oops! His brother William is already embroiled in his own bribery scandal. Wow how often do you see brothers brought up on separate but similar charges in the same time period!! It makes you wonder, do they help each other out with tricks of the trade? Maybe they give each other leads and tips. Or do they have a competition going on trying to see who can surpass the other in accumulating illicit funds while avoiding prosecution. No matter how their trials end, at least they can be satisfied and reminisce about how they both have been successful in their chosen family business.
