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.
