    Of course. Race had everything to do with it. You don't really beleve that a white man would have gone away for that long, do you?

    Why the huge difference? Does pleading guilty really give 5 years off on a vastly larger bribery case?
    It's got nothing to do with race, but rather with the charges that were brought and with the plea agreement that Cunningham entered into.

    Cunningham's attorney, Mark Holscher, later said that the government's evidence was so overwhelming that he had no choice but to recommend a guilty plea.[36] With the plea bargain, Cunningham faced a maximum of 10 years; had he fought the charges, Cunningham risked spending the rest of his life in prison.

    I admit I laughed, though - the image of have 90,000 in the fridge is rather humerous.

    Poor Guy.

    I am going to take the unpopular, irrational, and down right stupid stance of being in support of Jefferson's innocence.

    Well forget my previous post.

    He's guilty, there's no question about it. Man. (kidding)

    Yeah, man, this all because he's black. You don't think they would throw a white congress critter in the joint for 13 years, do you?

    I mean, it's a Federal law, that blacks automtically get more time than whites. I can't remember where in the code it is, but it's there.

    I wonder how much time they will give Witches that are Black.

    I bet that's like an automatic death sentence.

    Double life, at least. That's if they have a Liberal jury.

    He definitely warranted jailtime. How many years was Duke Cunningham given?
