TIME magazine's online edition is reporting that former US Rep. Randy Cunningham wore a wire for a short time to help the Feds gain information to
use against his co-conspirators prior to pleading guilty to tax evasion and conspiracy charges six weeks ago. Official sources for both Cunningham
and the prosecution will neither confirm nor deny the reports.
Report says Cunningham wore wire
Authorities on Friday refused comment on a report that former 50th District Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham wore a wire to record conversations
with unidentified associates before pleading guilty to tax and bribery charges in November.
The report published on TIME magazine's online edition quoted unnamed sources as saying Cunningham wore the wire to help federal authorities collect
evidence against others involved in the case.
Debra Hartman, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office in San Diego, said there would be no comment on the story from the federal prosecutors in
charge of the Cunningham investigation.

What I heard the feds said to the reporters about the wiretap, was, "like we're going to tell you!" I wouldn't doubt that he wore one. I hope
they snag as many of the rotten buggers as they can get the dirt on.
