If there were fewer Republican-corruption scandals floating around, this would be front-page news:
The House Intelligence Committee is investigating the misconduct of its former member, Duke Cunningham (R-Penitentiary). Cunningham was also a member of the House Appropriations Committee, and used those memberships to misdirect at least $70 million in defense and intelligence contracts in return for millions in bribes.
Yes, you knew that. But here’s the kicker:
The House Appropriations Committee, whose Chairman, another California whacko Republican, is also under criminal investigation for bribery, has refused to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Cunningham.
Can you say “cover-up”? I was sure you could.
