    In the latest twist to former U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's tale of greed and corruption, celebrity defense attorney Mark Geragos has joined the legal team of one of the former congressman's alleged conspirators in a massive bribery scam. Geragos, whose former clients include pop star Michael Jackson, former first brother Roger Clinton and former Congressman Gary Condit, said Wednesday that he recently began representing Poway businessman Brent Wilkes. Court documents allege that Cunningham's conspirators, one of whom is believed to be Wilkes, lavished the congressman with cash, loans and gifts in recent years. In March, the eight-term former congressman...

    Barry Bonds' personal trainer was on his way back to prison Monday after being held in contempt of court for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the Giants slugger. Greg Anderson could remain behind bars for more than a year while the grand jury investigates Bonds for perjury and tax evasion, regarding income from sales of his sports memorabilia. Anderson, who has appeared five times before two federal grand juries without answering pertinent questions, was held in contempt of court for two weeks last month but was released when that grand jury's term expired. "Sometimes sitting in the...

Arlen Specter's claim to the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee. They should advertise exclusively on MSNBC. Maybe they could even get Al Gore to endorse them and hire Howard Dean as their spokesman. Our motto: "A HUMILIATING DEFEAT EVERY TIME – OR YOUR MONEY BACK!"

    A replica of the fishing boat that prosecutors say Scott Peterson used to dispose of his wife's body stirred up emotions and caused a run on floral arrangements Wednesday in Redwood City. Peterson's attorney Mark Geragos parked the replica boat, complete with a headless dummy tied in duct tape and weighted down with concrete anchors, in the parking lot of an office building he owns a block from the courthouse where jurors are deliberating the case against Peterson. The defense attorney had used the 14-foot aluminum boat to videotape a re- enactment of someone trying to dump a 150-pound body...
