Via ISOU, this interesting tidbit in the “Duke” Cunningham case:
Sources familiar with the situation say Cunningham, a California Republican who pleaded guilty Nov. 28 to taking $2.4 million in bribes — including a yacht, a Rolls Royce and a 19th Century Louis-Philippe commode — from a defense contractor, wore a wire at some point during the short interval between the moment he began cooperating with the feds and the announcement of his guilty plea on Nov. 28.
The identity of those with whom the San Diego congressman met while wearing the wire remains unclear, and is the source of furious — and nervous — speculation by congressional Republicans.
Let the dirty bastards sweat.
I guess there is no honor among thieves.
It’s kind of funny that the Republicans have created so much grief for themselves so quickly after several successive victories. And when I say “grief for themselves” I mean it too. It’s tough to argue that the Dems have been whooping ass by any measure. I don’t know what the next election will bring, but if the R’s see their majorities thin or fade, it’ll really and truly be their own fault.
No it will really and truly be the fault of the liberal media who insist on reporting all of these crimes instead of properly focusing on our outstanding successes in the WOT.Oh, yeah and Clinton did it too.
Jeebus, Abramoff was the Godfather.
Leave the congressman, take the cannoli.
The Other Steve
Yeah, but it still pisses me off that the Democrats whole strategery for winning elections is to wait for the Republicans to self destruct…
Granted, it does seem to be a pretty regular thing for the GOP to do… but it still pisses me off.
Let’s just hope the Dukester stopped in to chat with his northern neighbor David Dreier a little bit. We almost whipped that punk the last time. Held him to 54% of the vote in one hell of a gerrymandered Republican district.
A Congressman wearing a wire. What sad days are these.
The Disenfranchised Voter
I see your point, but it’s about damn time that these crooks, and by crook I mean all dirty politicians, are gonna go down.
Only in that we can’t fit him for a noose afterwards…
Interesting Craig’s List entry this morning …
