My stocking is getting so full

Raw Story:
Short of a last minute intervention by Rove’s attorney, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is expected to ask a grand jury investigating the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson to indict Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove for making false statements to the FBI and Justice Department investigators in October 2003, lawyers close to the case say.
And Tom Delay and Duke Cunningham may be sharing a ride to the ends of their careers.
A Texas prosecutor has issued subpoenas for bank records and other information of a defense contractor involved in the bribery case of a California congressman as part of the investigation of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

What I can't figure out is why Cunningham's wife isn't being charged as an accessory. ie, Where did she think the extra millions were coming from? The tooth fairy?

An excellent point, but I guess they never charge mob wives either, do they? Republicans should be embarrassed that they are so easily compared to the Gotti family these days.

The reason I mentioned that is his wife is trying to claim 50% of the ill gotten gains due to California's spouse laws. She says she is entitled to 50% of the booty.
