Old School

And now some old school corruption from the L.A. Times.

"A former military contractor was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years in federal prison for bribing former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham with cash, ritzy vacations and prostitutes in exchange for help in getting government contracts," the Times story said yesterday.

Intelligence contractor Brent Wilkes was convicted in November on 13 counts. Prosectors said he got $80 million in business as a result of exchanges involving $700,000 in bribes.

"Cunningham, a decorated Navy fighter pilot who served in Vietnam, was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty in 2006 to taking $2.4 million in bribes and evading more than $1 million in federal income taxes," the story said.

Cunningham had a "bribe menu" on congressional stationery indicating how much he demanded from contractors seeking his help, prosecutors said, according to the story.

Thank goodness there are no other lawmakers who share Cunningham's loose ethics.

Are there? Government Inc. is standing by.
