Letter to Representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham Concerning His Relationship with Defense Contractor Mitchell Wade
Dear Representative Cunningham:
Common Cause urges you to step down from your seats on the Appropriations Subcommittee for Defense and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in light of published reports concerning your relationship with defense contractor Mitchell Wade.
While you have said you will not seek re-election next year, you are still a member of the Intelligence Committee and the Appropriations Subcommittee for Defense, which are key committees handling sensitive information and decisions. The reported facts about the questionable sale of your home to Wade around the time his company was seeking your support for government contracts represent a conflict of interest and demonstrate poor judgment.
