Surprise, Surprise...Another Republican Scandal

Rep. Randy Cunningham (R-California) pleads guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud and wire fraud, and tax evasion.

"In a statement, prosecutors said Cunningham admitted to receiving at least $2.4 million in bribes paid to him by several conspirators through a variety of methods, including checks totaling over $1 million, cash, rugs, antiques, furniture, yacht club fees and vacations."

Among the largest bribes were from federal defense contractor Mitchell Wade, whose business revenues tripled after being awarded defense contracts by the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee on which Rep. Cunningham sits.
