I think this may have gotten lost in the shuffle. But Cunningham briber Mitchell Wade really does appear to be becoming a gold mine of information for federal prosecutors.
His cooperation may even rival Jack Abramoff’s in the number of players he helps bring down.
As Paul Kiel reported yesterday, in recently filed court documents, prosecutors and Wade’s attorneys jointly asked the judge in Wade’s case to delay his sentencing indefinitely because his cooperation seems likely to “continue for quite some time.” They don’t even want to discuss a sentencing date when the parties next meet in August.
It sounds like it could take going on two years for Wade to get through all the cooperating he plans to do.
