That, my internaut friends, is a pun. What makes it a pun, you ask? The disgraced, bribe-taking, influence-peddling former Republican Rep. from California is no fox, you think. Ah, but you think wrong, in this case. Time magazine tells us just show shifty the old man was (or at least how willing to cooperate):
Sources familiar with the situation say Cunningham, a California Republican who pleaded guilty Nov. 28 to taking $2.4 million in bribes — including a yacht, a Rolls Royce and a 19th Century Louis-Philippe commode — from a defense contractor, wore a wire at some point during the short interval between the moment he began cooperating with the feds and the announcement of his guilty plea on Nov. 28.Dead Man Walking!
The identity of those with whom the San Diego congressman met while wearing the wire remains unclear, and is the source of furious — and nervous — speculation by congressional Republicans.
