The Issue
San Diego mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher has risen quickly through local politics. But his resume includes one job he doesn’t publicize: district director for jailed former Congressman Duke Cunningham.
The Scandal
There’s no evidence connecting Fletcher to the bribery scandal that landed Cunningham in jail. Fletcher spent two years on Cunningham’s payroll, but most of that time Fletcher was on active duty in the Marines.
The Fallout
Fletcher shares the fate of other former Cunningham staffers. No matter their involvement in Cunningham’s activities, they can’t escape the connection.
