Another One Bites The Dust

Reported by Donna - November 28, 2005

Another Republican bit the dust today as he plead guilty to several charges of bribery in Federal Court and resigned his position as a Congressman. Representative Randy 'Duke' Cunningham was a Top Gun Instructor and a Congressman for 18 years.

What's surprising about this? That Fox reported it at all. But looking over the fact that Representative Randy 'Duke' Cunningham admitted his guilt, I'd have to say they had little choice.

It was reported on Studio B with Shepard Smith that Representative Cunningham had given bribes in return for political favors. However other sources are reporting that these 'political favors' were because the Congressman
took $2.4 million in bribes to steer defense contracts to conspirators.

Defense contracts, somehow it just seems that Republicans just leaped for joy when we went to war in Iraq. Apparently it became a gold mine for some.

What say ye? Is this an isolated incident or is it all part of the culture of corruption that seems to be enveloping this administration and Republican politicians?

Comments: I'll give Studio B credit for covering the story, however, like I pointed out above, I think they had little choice but to report it since the Congressman had admitted his guilt. That the bribes were for Defense contracts should have been covered on Fox as it is another building block in the ever increasing scandals surrounding the Republicans in it's fervor to go to war.
