Prosecutors Want Max for Ex-Congressman - Yahoo! News

Prosecutors Want Max for Ex-Congressman - Yahoo! News:
The staggering details of Cunningham's wrongdoing surpass anything in the history of Congress, Senate and House historians said. His bribes included a Rolls-Royce, a yacht, homes, travel, meals, $40,000 Persian rugs and antique furnishings.

'In the sheer dollar amount, he is the most corrupt,' said Deputy House Historian Fred W. Beuttler. 'The scale of it is unprecedented.'

Cunningham pleaded guilty Nov. 28 to tax evasion and a conspiracy involving four others. Defense contractor Mitchell Wade pleaded guilty last month to plying Cunningham with more than $1 million in gifts over four years.
Now that's grabbing for the gusto! I wonder who will be next to set the record?
