Randy "Snap On Hair" Cunningham charged

And charged in a big way. Looks like he's going from White House to big house.

Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham "demanded and received" a bribe from a Pentagon contractor who paid far above market value for the congressman's Del Mar-area home in 2003, according to court documents filed yesterday by federal prosecutors.

Without citing details, prosecutors said in the documents that Cunningham sold the house in return for his influence in Congress, where he serves on the House subcommittee that oversees Pentagon spending.

Just take a look at the photos of the briber and bribee. Talk about a case for visual profiling. That Wade character oozes 'crook' like he oozes Vitalis.
