The Los Angeles Times has reported that the corruption investigation into former Congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham hasn’t slowed — despite the firing of U.S. Attorney Carol Lam.
Citing unnamed sources, the Times says the probe is continuing unabated.
The U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego is moving forward on the expanding investigation that netted Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, R-Rancho Santa Fe, the sources said. And prosecutors in Los Angeles continue to examine Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands, over various dealings with lobbyists and contractors during the time he was chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
Neither Lam nor [former Los Angeles-based U.S. Attorney Debra Wong] Yang had direct involvement in the corruption investigations, the sources said.
