Republican congressman pleads guilty to conspiracy


Representative Randy Cunningham (R-CA) pleaded guilty today to charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of tax evasion for underreporting his 2004 income and admitted taking $2.4 million in bribes.

Cunningham resigned after pleading guilty.

Here's the scary part: Cunningham had been chair of the House Intelligence subcommittee on terrorism and human intelligence.

Feel safer now?

Didn't feel safe then! Not surprised by his guilt at all. Too bad government officials have to get head from an intern to be judged as liars. You would think this would be enough but we will see him again I bet...
