Republican Scandals - So much better with Hookers!

Harper's has a great piece up by Ken Silverstein (apparently channeling the Wall Street Journal) about Duke Cunningham who apparently liked to spice up his life with bribes AND hookers. Of course it doesn't end there

It turns out the FBI is currently investigating two defense contractors who allegedly provided Cunningham with free limousine service, free stays at hotel suites at the Watergate and the Westin Grand, and free prostitutes.

This is my favorite part...

I've learned from a well-connected source that those under intense scrutiny by the FBI are current and former lawmakers on Defense and Intelligence comittees—including one person who now holds a powerful intelligence post. I've also been able to learn the name of the limousine service that was used to ferry the guests and other attendees to the parties: Shirlington Limousine and Transportation of Arlington, Virginia.

What's that? Who's the CEO of Shirlington?

...the man who has been identified as the CEO of Shirlington has a 62-page rap sheet (I recently obtained a copy) that runs from at least 1979 through 1989 and lists charges of petit larceny, robbery, receiving stolen goods, assault, and more. Curiously—or perhaps not so curiously given the company's connections—Shirlington Limousine is also a Department of Homeland Security contractor; according to the Washington Post, last fall it won a $21.2 million contract for shuttle services and transportation support.

You just KNOW this is going to get even better. Cunningham is seriously like a gift that keeps on giving! Thanks, Duke!
