Just a tad corrupt

US congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a senior Californian Republican, broke down as he resigned yesterday after pleading guilty in court to taking bribes, including cash, a yacht and a Rolls-Royce.

The case is the latest scandal to rock President George W.Bush’s Republicans who dominate US Congress. The party has controlled US Congress for more than a decade.

Can’t we change this?

Former house majority leader Tom DeLay, a Texas Republican, was indicted in September on charges of breaking his state’s campaign finance laws. The US Securities and Exchange Commission is also investigating stock sales by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican, and vice-presidential aide Lewis Libby was also charged last month with perjury over the leaking of a CIA operative’s name.

Man, we need a broom.
