Out of baking soda?

It used to be that when people had unpleasant odors in their fridge, they would open a box of baking soda and put it inside to absorb the odors. Arm & Hammer even had an ad campaign based on this.

So, what does Louisiana Representative William Jefferson use for fridge odors?

Rep. William J. Jefferson (D-La.), the target of a 14-month public corruption probe, was videotaped accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from a Northern Virginia investor who was wearing an FBI wire, according to a search warrant affidavit released yesterday.

A few days later, on Aug. 3, 2005, FBI agents raided Jefferson's home in Northeast Washington and found $90,000 of the cash in the freezer, in $10,000 increments wrapped in aluminum foil and stuffed inside frozen-food containers, the document said.
Yes, I know the joke about "cold hard cash" sounds much better, but Jawa Report beat me to it. Baking soda was the next best thing.
