In past elections, I always voted for the candidates who espoused views similar to mine with little thought to party affiliation. However, after the Republican convention and adoption of their far right, fundamentalist platform, I will not be voting for any Republicans--from the presidency to our local mayoral race. The Republican platform has become one based on hate and intolerance. George Bush, Dan Quayle, Randy Cunningham, Bruce Herschensohn, and Duncan Hunter have taken the "dem" out of democracy and replaced it with a lot of "hyp."

The rogue congressman's loot went to the highest bidder Thursday -- all those ill-gotten rugs and armoires and candlesticks. Not many people seemed to care. Randy "Duke" Cunningham is going to prison for taking $2.4 million in bribes while he was in office. But only a handful of the hundreds of people who bid at the Internal Revenue Service auction in Rancho Dominguez even seemed aware that the disgraced politician's belongings were up for grabs: lots 61 to 95 in the auction catalog.

Is the military supposed to serve as some type of glorified unemployment agency? I ask this question in response to the comments made by Congressmen Duncan Hunter and Randy Cunningham and their efforts to prevent certain military bases in San Diego from being closed ("Officials to Fight Idea of Closing Military Sites," June 1). If the government has decided that these bases are not necessary, do we need to keep them open just to protect jobs? I do not think that is the purpose of the military.

Defense contractor Mitchell J. Wade pleaded guilty Friday to giving former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Rancho Santa Fe) more than $1 million in bribes in exchange for help landing government contracts. Wade, 46, also pleaded guilty to providing favors to Defense Department officials and funneling illegal campaign contributions to two members of Congress. A former Navy officer and Defense Department official, Wade faces a maximum sentence of more than 11 years in prison.

In the second disparaging remark made about gays this year by a member of Congress, Rep. Randy Cunningham, in a speech on the House floor, referred to Democrats who oppose revamping the Clean Water Act as "the same ones who would put homos in the military." In a statement issued later, Cunningham (R-San Diego) said he used the offensive term as "shorthand" for the word homosexual because he was "under time pressures to complete my statement within the allotted time."

Re "Cunningham's Fall From Grace, Power," Dec. 5 Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Rancho Santa Fe) sold his soul so he could live in a big house. Now he's looking at 10 years in the Big House. Poetic justice, no? PAUL JACKSON Chatsworth The story Dec. 3 in the California section stating, "Under Office of Personnel Management rules, Cunningham can keep his congressional pension despite the guilty plea," is as clear an indication of the corruptive behavior of our elected officials as anyone might invent.

The FBI is investigating Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's 2003 sale of his Del Mar Heights home to a defense contractor who later sold it at a $700,000 loss, a source close to the investigation said Friday. The probe, according to the source, has been ongoing "for quite some time" and may involve other law enforcement agencies. Cunningham, a San Diego Republican, has come under increasing criticism by Democrats over the house sale, as well as for his current living arrangements.

The Persian rugs, silver candelabra, vases, armoires, French commode, end tables, mirrors, buffet table, leather sofa, sleigh-style bed and custom oak and leaded-glass doors once adorned Randy "Duke" Cunningham's 8,000-square-foot mansion in Rancho Santa Fe. On Tuesday, they were spread across the concrete floor of a nondescript warehouse here, displayed by the Internal Revenue Service near crates of possessions seized from convicted drug dealers and financial finaglers.

The downfall of former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham in a bribery scandal has cleared the way for a surprisingly competitive race for his San Diego County congressional seat, a contest that will test the strength of Democratic efforts to regain control of Congress.
