E to the Dizzo, J to the Ew-wo -- not guilty, we gots to feel him! Ed Jew, in an American flag tie, appeared in state criminal court today and pled not guilty to the charges of lying about his residency, but not before waving at and hugging members of a 100-deep cheering crowd outside the courthouse.

Just to remind, today's hearing was just on the charges that DA Kamala Harris filed -- the FBI is still investigating the federal criminal charges of bribery, and Jerry Brown's office is still looking into the non-criminal proceedings that the City Attorney wants to bring. Beat those charges like Rocky, Ed!

Cops want to knock me, DA want to box me in! Clip of Jay-Z's Izzo (sorry we can't find a more exciting video clip to use.)
