Tidal Wave or Ripple

Can't tell if this AP story is a "one and done" or if it signals a more in-depth Republican involvement in Duke Cunningham's circus of corruption.

"A Texas prosecutor has issued subpoenas for bank records of a defense contractor involved in the bribery case of former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham as part of the investigation of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

District Attorney Ronnie Earle issued subpoenas last Thursday for California businessmen Brent Wilkes and Max Gelwix, records of Perfect Wave Technologies, Wilkes Corp. and ADCS Inc. in connection with a contribution to a fundraising committee at the center of the investigation that led to DeLay's indictment on money laundering charges."

Brent Wilkes is a prolific contributor to Republicans, including President Bush.
