The Dukestir

Josh Marshall has a good rundown on the Dukestir, but I'm fascinated by the lack of important context here as well as (unsurprisingly) a lost opportunity by the Democrats.

Consider this. The Dukestir wasn't just a corrupt congressman taking bribes. He was taking bribes for defense contracts during war. He was cheating our military, our government, and the taxpayers. He illegally profited on the war.
