More Capital donations

Oh, Randy 'Duke' Cunningham must be really angry right now. He pled guilty to crimes of accepting bribes from "Defense" contractors MZM and Wilkes/ADCS Inc. and it turns out that he was not the top recipient of their "contributions". From the associated article:

Political action committees controlled by MZM, Inc., which was founded by alleged Cunningham co-conspirator Mitchell Wade, and ADCS, Inc., which was founded by alleged co-conspirator Brent Wilkes, have contributed more than $1 million in the last 10 years to a roster of politicians, leadership PACs and party committees, including Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-Va.), Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.), Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.), Tom DeLay's Americans for a Republican Majority PAC and President Bush. Republicans have been the recipients of 95% of the two defense contractors' giving, according to the Center for Responsive Politics' analysis.
