However, I'm guessing that few who hear about Cunningham have ever heard of former U.S. Rep. Frank Ballance, a Democrat who as a North Carolina state senator used his official position to channel public funds into a private nonprofit that he operated. He received a four-year sentence in federal prison on Oct. 12 after admitting guilt to redirecting taxpayer dollars for his private use. He had resigned his congressional seat last year.
I'm guessing that in coming days we'll be hearing a lot from the MSM about Cunningham, as they advance their "Republicans = corruption" agenda. Amazing that they could totally ignore Ballance's conviction and get away with it -- the bloggers didn't even catch that one.
