Corrupt Congressman Draws Eight-Year Term

Randy Cunningham, who took millions in bribes and "gifts", was sentenced to eight years in prison. He did take responsibility for his acts, telling the judge, "Your honor I have ripped my life to shreds due to my actions, my actions that I did to myself...I made a very wrong turn. I rationalized decisions I knew were wrong. I did that, sir."

Good. Housecleaning is never fun, but is necessary if you want to govern. Republicans have more work to do.

I was disgusted that the judge even entertained his prattling about his service in Vietnam. Yes, he served his country proudly, and then turned around and crapped on that honor so he could turn a buck.
