You've got to be more specific than that

CNN headline: Crooked congressman jailed.
Former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham has been sentenced to eight years and four months in prison, the longest term ever given to a congressman. Cunningham -- a California Republican who resigned in disgrace last year -- pleaded guilty to accepting $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors. Cunningham's lawyers wrote in a sentencing submission: "His own misconduct has already left him penniless, homeless, estranged from those he loves and disgraced in the eyes of his countrymen."
About 400 more to go, then the Senate.
