No Pancakes, Just Search Warrants for Cunningham

Embattled Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham spent July 4th trying to avoid fireworks. Cunningham, whose home was raided over the weekend by the FBI, canceled his annual appearance at a pancake breakfast in his district.

The event was to have been Cunningham's first public appearance since the beginning of a federal investigation into shady financial dealings, including the sale of Cunningham's California home to a defense contractor whose company has benefited from numerous lucrative government contracts that Cunningham weighed in on.

According to the Associated Press, Cunningham's spokesman said the Congressman did not want a media frenzy to distract from the spirit of the event.

  • Yeah keep fryin' Leader DeLay. If you start to critcize Duke, then you're gonna have to whine about Nancy Pelosi's (intentionally?) unethical trips, reports for hich she "mysteriously" forgot to file for 7 years. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/04/AR2005070400924.html) Not to mention the fact that the only complaint actually before the House Ethics Committee is with regards to his-scuminess "Baghdad" Jim McDermott, also a Demoncrat.
