A Political Quiz
What do the following people have in common?
Randy "Duke" Cunningham
It looks like a list of thug names to me, and that might not be a bad guess. But the correct answer is that all these men are either being investigated for various wrongdoings or have been found guilty of them. Some of them may turn out to be innocent, of course. But not Randy Cunningham who just pleaded guilty to accepting bribes of at least 2.4 million dollars.
All these men are also politicians, and with the exception of William Jefferson (who is a Democrat), wingnut politicians. As the Republicans are selling themselves as the moral party it is truly spectacular that the list also includes several of the top wingnuts in the country.
