Duke Cunningham Can't "Perform" With His Prostitute - Stop the Military Industrial Corruption by Eric Nielsen 7.19.07
The FBI report that came out yesterday about Republican SD Congressman Duke Cunningham is hilarious and so sad at the same time. This document shows exactly what is wrong with American politics. It shows the depth of corruption that the military industrial complex has fostered in our Congress. Duke was soliciting bribes to make sure certain weapons programs were pushed. These weapon makers were delivering envelopes of cash every time Duke would call. You must read the confession Duke gave to the FBI, the IRS, the DA and this was all with his lawyers present. What else can he tell about other politicians? He did refuse to implicate other representatives. What is that helicopter program that Duncan Hunter keeps pushing? Stop the Military Industrial Complex!
In the report it's noted that a contractor paid for a couple of nights of prostitutes for Duke while in Hawaii'. The contractor got the younger and cuter whore and Duke had "difficulty completing intercourse" while wearing a condom with the girl who was ex Air Force. He had another girl the next night but can't remember if it was the same girl as the first night or not. Besides this he was also given 2 guns, a Sea Doo, a boat with a trailer and docking rights (after he crashed the first one he asked for and was given a second boat), $500,000 cash for his home (this was given only after he promised to assist in obtaining additional government funding, Cunningham recalled exerting
pressure on government officials to free up money and pay), 5 vacations where lodging airfare and meals were included, cash was also included for gambling on his trip to Vegas, computers for him and his daughter, GPS services, meals liquor and limo service, and lots and lots of cash delivered to him upon request.
We all know that this same thing goes on in an "above the board" way with politicians. Most often the money from the contractors comes in in smaller pay outs with meals, trips, tickets and most importantly reelection fundraising. When are we going to get out of a mind frame of war spending? Can the Democrats do any better? We are so far ahead militarily we should focus our spending on internal things in the US. How about alternative energy or fixing the levee's in California? What if we can keep the economy going by spending the same amount of money on other things? Would you want to? I would. It's a no brainer. Except for those inside the beltway with their lives intertwined with death and killing machines.
