Don't forget Duke!

Claim filed on Cunningham house:
The U.S. Attorney's Office has filed a secret lawsuit against Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham that contends he should forfeit his Rancho Santa Fe home to the government because it was purchased with illegally obtained money.
This is the house he purchased after the dubious sale of a house for about $700,000 more than it was worth. The suit is related to "a violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 201," the section relating to bribery, graft and conflicts of interest.
