Sweetheart deals: "U.S. Representative Randy 'Duke' Cunningham (R-CA) has a reputation for both brashness and emotion. The tough-talking former Navy ''Top Gun'' fighter pilot once said that President Clinton's anti-war activities during the Vietnam War would result in being 'tried as a traitor and even shot' if he had lived in another country. He has also unleashed nasty attacks on political opponents and cried during speeches. But he was nearly silent for almost two weeks after the story broke this month that he had sold his house for nearly $1.7 million to a campaign contributor and close friend -- whose company was enjoying a rush of new business with the Pentagon."
