Pure Arrogance of Incumbency

As Cunningham climbed into the back of a black Blazer, one reporter asked if he were considering resigning.

He tilted his head and asked softly: "Why should I?"

Read the papers much?

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported in June that Cunningham sold his Del Mar-area home in 2003 to Mitchell Wade, the founder of MZM, a defense contractor, for $1.675 million and that Wade later sold the house for $700,000 less. Around the same time, MZM's defense contracts increased dramatically.

Other questions have arisen because Cunningham lives on Wade's yacht, named the "Duke-Stir," while paying only docking and maintenance fees and netted $400,000 when he sold his own yacht to a man convicted of bid-rigging. FBI and grand jury investigations are ongoing.

This doesn't include the Duke, contributions to Tom DeLay of Texas?

This doesn't include the Duke, seal of the House of Representatives on a buck knife for personal sale/revenue?

Or the problem with the Duke-stir Yacht and the Kelly C Yacht.... Count them... 2 yachts and a home in Del Mar.
