He May Have Left Congress But He Just Won't Go Away

Wow, every time you think it can't get worse for Congressional Republicans (or former Congressional Republicans as the case may be), it does. Take disgraced ex-California Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who resigned in November after pleading guilty to taking $2.4 million in bribes. Time Magazine is reporting that he wore a wire in meetings with some of his colleagues at the behest of federal investigators as part of his plea. It's not yet clear who will be swept up in this net, just that he 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." Glad to see Duke's not out of the news quite yet. Here's hoping to see a few other of his fellow culture of corruption cohorts shed a few tears of contrition themselves.
