It Doesn't End With Cunningham
How many of you out there think that Randy Cunningham’s crimes are an isolated incident, that he was just “one bad apple”, and that the rest of the GOP House leadership knew nothing about his $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors, and weren’t getting rich off this war on terror since 9/11 in similar ways as well? There’s a reason why the House and Senate GOP refuse to investigate this war, the lies told to sell it, the disappearing Iraq reconstruction monies, and even Abu Ghraib. And that reason is purely to protect their own asses. Cunningham’s actions, along with the Abramoff/Scanlon cesspool, are just the tip of the K Street iceberg that guys like Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, and Grover Norquist have steered the GOP ship into.
Let’s see what level of cooperation “Duke” provides to federal prosecutors about the activities of his GOP brethren in exchange for a lenient sentence in February.
