Unoriginal Congressman Spends Bribe Money on Rugs
I don’t care that Congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham is selfish. We expect this kind of behavior from our politicians and, honestly, I would be more surprised if the guy wasn’t taking money.

What bothers me is his complete and total unoriginality in spending it.. The guy wasted $2.5 million in bribes on his house, his boat, some antiques and a couple of nice rugs.

That’s a lot of money. And he is facing a long time in jail for taking it. Couldn’t he think of anything better to do with it than buy a rug?

Here are some suggestions:

Throw a party. A really big party on an island somewhere.
Donate it all to charity. Looks good at your trial.
Resign from congress and go back to get a PhD. Hmm? Maybe not.
Invest the money in a competing defense company.
Bribe someone else.
