Duke Cunningham nostagia

Now that Duke Cunningham is finally owning up to a remarkable array of corrupt behaviors, it is worth a whirl in the Wayback Machine, to this tidbit from the halcyon days of this past summer, which we noted here.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) yesterday defended Rep. Duke Cunningham (R-Calif.) after calls from congressional Democrats to investigate the Republican appropriator for selling his San Diego home to a defense contractor whose firm had received $65 million in federal funds in 2004.

“Duke Cunningham is a hero,” DeLay said during a press briefing Tuesday. “He is an honorable man of high integrity.”
What adorable rascals they are.

I remember when he made that quote and thinking how much trouble he was in if DeLay wassupportive. And that was back before DeLay was indicted.

Does anyone know the status of Nancy Cunningham? Will she face jail time? Will she pay back taxes? When will they ever investigate her 2002 employment at the US Department of Education where she was involved in millions of dollars of computer contracts?
