Look out Duncan Hunter

From a few days after the Duke's plea, the Contra Costa Times ran this AP story, which has this little precious nugget:

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-El Cajon, called Cunningham a friend and colleague in a statement Tuesday that emphasized his accomplishments as a fighter pilot.

"We, his remaining friends, have spent the last day with Duke praying and talking about a new chapter in Duke's life, a chapter of service to God," Hunter said.

Cunningham, who was in his eighth term, is free as he awaits sentencing Feb. 27. He faces up to 10 years in prison for tax evasion and conspiracy, having admitted taking $2.4 million in bribes in exchange for steering government contracts to coconspirators.

(Emphasis added.)

Now Rep. Hunter is probably just how good a friend Cunningham was...

Cunningham won't be sentenced to February 27 -- that means we have a little while to wait until hearing exactly what reduction in sentence he might have gotten...

(Thanks to Daily DeLay reader BK for the tip.)


  • If anyone is in the 52nd district of California, please let everyone know when a challanger to Duncan Hunter emerges this year. I would love to contribute money to anyone who can defeat this smug, corrupt piece of scum. There are many Republicans I'd like to see tarred and feathered but this son of a bitch is way at the top of the list.

  • John Rinaldi, Democrat for Congress, ( just received over 60% of the pre-endorsement delegate vote (22ish, I think). Next closest vote was 5 votes for Casady, all 5 of which looked like favors to me. Otter and Moore-Kochlacs pulled 2 each.

    His site says he's a fiscally conservative, socially progressive, and morally grounded guy.

    Even though Casady is a long-time Democrat in SD, he lives in La Jolla and just announced he hired Larry Remer who was indicted in 2005 on corruption charges! Can you beleive this guy? That's NOT what we need!
