Duke Cunningham Apologizes.

Duke Cunningham blamed the public for perceiving any wrong doing on his part today in a personal statement posted on his website. He informs us that he, "acted honorably and honestly," apologizing only that he did not, "consider how this transaction might be perceived by others who don't know me." Hmm...The guy you sold your house to for twice its value just happened to be the same guy you awarded contracts worth tens of millions of dollars. I'm not sure I want to know you, Duke. In fairness, Duke tells us he lived on Mitchell Wade's boat in DC and in return paid docking and service fees of approximately $13,000 since April 2004, which is true comes out to roughly $1,000/month--far below what an equivalent apartment would go for in DC, but still a respectable sum. Regardless, add it to the $700,000 Wade outright gave Cunningham, and things are pretty fishy to say teh least.
