SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who collected $2.4 million in homes, yachts, antique furnishings and other bribes on a scale unparalleled in the history of Congress, was sentenced Friday to eight years and four months in prison, the longest term meted out to a congressman in decades. Cunningham, who resigned from Congress in disgrace last year, was spared the 10-year maximum by U.S. District Judge Larry Burns. He also was ordered to pay $1.8 million in restitution for back taxes.Good! Republicans can't be the good guys if they tolerate bad guys. One problem I have is that Congress has written laws so that even when they go to prison, they will still collect their pensions and benefits. Cunningham will get something like $40,000 a year.
