The results are in from the auction of antiques that cost former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham his job.
Dozens of pieces of furniture, jewelry and artwork -- part of the $2.4 million in bribes that the San Diego Republican took -- went to the highest bidder yesterday, raising $94,625 for the government. Talking Points Memo has posted a list of the auctioned pelf and the sale prices.
The Dukester has just begun serving an eight-year sentence.
Meanwhile, Marilyn Monroe fanatics recently paid $1.26 million for a dress and $78,000 for a birthday card, but fakes aplenty are out there, according to a Los Angeles Times story.
