Lot of interesting Congressional corruption stories floating around right now, most of them sort of out of sight of the mainstream. We have all heard at least a little something on House Majority Leader Tom Delay's troubles with ethics, or lack there of. But let's look at a couple that might not be on the radar.

We can get into Representative Bob Ney's dealings. A trip to Scotland courtesy of some Indian Casino lobbyists, $150,000. Being involved with a gangster who murders a rival casino owner, PRICELESS.

Then we have Representative Duke Cunningham, chariman of the House Defense Appropriations committee. Selling house to owner of a defense contractor, $1,675,000. Defense contractor sells house for $975,000, taking a $700,00 bath. Value of the defense contracts won by the contractor, PRICELESS.
