Summary
  • Inside the courtroom that Monday morning, November 28, 2005, Cunningham assumed a hang-dog air, clasping his hands in front of him and quietly offering concise replies to questions posed by U.S. District Judge Larry Alan Burns. They were short, terse answers, but their impact was huge- they would send the congressman to prison, brand him as the most corrupt person ever to serve in Congress, and forever tarnish a reputation he had spent decades trying to shape
  • "Between the year 2000 and June of 2005 in our district, you conspired to accept bribes in exchange for performance of official duties. Did you do that?" Judge Burns asked Cunningham. "Yes, your Honor." "Did you take both cash payments and payments in kind?" Burns asked. "Yes, your Honor." "Did you follow up by trying to influence the Defense Department?" "Yes, your Honor."
