I’m really curious to see whether this story (noted below) about Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R) gets much pick up or not in the press.
From the plain facts of the matter, as reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune yesterday, it seems like there’s a pretty strong case that this defense contractor, Mitchell Wade, gave a congressman a personal gift of almost three-quarters of a million dollars and hid it in the form of home sale. And this was a congressman who was in a position to — and by his own account apparently did –help the contractor secure numerous defense and intelligence contracts valued in the tens of millions of dollars.
That sounds like sort of a big deal, doesn’t it?
So far Google News shows no pick ups for the story, only a reprint in a paper from just north of San Diego.
