Calif. Congressman Admits Taking Bribes: "Rep. Randy 'Duke' Cunningham, an eight-term congressman and hotshot Vietnam War fighter jock, pleaded guilty to graft and tearfully resigned Monday, admitting he took $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors to steer business their way.
'The truth is I broke the law, concealed my conduct, and disgraced my office,' the 63-year-old Republican said at a news conference. 'I know that I will forfeit my freedom, my reputation, my worldly possessions, most importantly, the trust of my friends and family.'"
I think we knew this was coming for a while now, but let's add another one to the list of Republicans indicted or under investigation. They are really giving the Democrats something to run on in 2006. It's time to clear out the party of corruption and lies.
