— LauraW. This guy is unbelievable:
Prosecutors call it a corruption case with no parallel in the long history of the U.S. Congress. And it keeps getting worse. Convicted Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham actually priced the illegal services he provided.
Prices came in the form of a "bribe menu" that detailed how much it would cost contractors to essentially order multimillion-dollar government contracts, according to documents submitted by federal prosecutors for Cunningham's sentencing hearing this Friday.
Be sure to check out what's on the menu and the rate scale.
Though the fact that he's being prosecuted mitigates my cynicism, it is probably fair to say that the only difference between this fellow and many of his colleagues is that he was enough of a dope to put his crime in writing.

Turns out, the guy was a real asshat, bragging about the Rolls Royce he had and so on. I wondered at the time how a congressman could afford such a thing, but figured what do I know?
Anyway, drinks were on him and I relieved him of a fair amount of cash via the dice game.
Turns out the money was mine in the first place in a way.
Jaggoff. He gives Naval Aviation a bad name.

I just bet this fuck was rude to people in service jobs and tipped like a cheap bastard as well.
Enjoy your jail time.

A shame that he's only getting 10 years, while the people who actually bribed him can get 20.
Cunningham should get life.
