Domenici hires Duke Cunningham’s lawyer.

Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) has “hired a top defense attorney to handle the pending ethics investigation into allegations that he pressured a federal prosecutor to bring indictments against New Mexico Democrats on the eve of the 2006 elections.” His choice: “Lee Blalack, who recently represented former congressman Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham (R-CA), who is now serving time in prison for bribery and other offenses,” and who was prosecuted by purged U.S. Attorney Carol Lam.
