Dirty Politician: "Duke" Cunningham gets 8 years, 4 months

Former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-CA) was sentenced to 8 years, 4 months in federal prison and will be required to pay $1.8 million in restitution. This is the longest sentence ever for a member of Congress. This case is just the tip of the iceberg--Congress full of similar corrupt politicians, some of whom are in similar trouble and others of whom will only be exposed later.

There's a nice collection of Cunningham data at Talking Points Memo.
