Remember Randy "Duke" Cunningham
? The guy who sort of kicked off the late, baroque scandal-era of the GOP ascendency with his boffo corruption scandal (he had actually prepared a menu for what contracts he might offer in exchange for which bribes) in mid-2005? Well, it sounds like half a decade in the can has turned Cunningham into something of a prison reform activist
. Says Cunningham ...
The USA has more prisoners than any other nation, including Russian & China. The US Attorneys win 98% of their cases and if you do not plead in which 80-90% is not true they threaten your wife children etc with prison time ... Maybe that's why God put me here to bring about much needed prison reform. Millions of prisoners but 4x that in families are harmed."
Never much of a grammarian. But prison seems to have changed the guy.
