Holy News Batman!

So here's a first--the SD Union-Trib actually decided to cover the biggest scandal in SD politics...and only a week late (I mean that as a compliment). The UT put our bud Duke Cunningham receiving a few hundred grand (numbers differ--at least $400k, but more likely $700k) through selling his home for an inflated value to one of the nation's largest defense contractors above the fold. He also happens to reside on the contractor's boat-rent free--when in DC. Duke's been wrapping himself in the flag recently, defending the government's treatment of prisoners at Gitmo and being an all around shmucks. Bets are he'll weasel out of this one just as Delay did down in Texas, but that's of course because it's just a liberal sham.
