Brent Wilkes Guilty on All Counts

A federal jury in San Diego today found contractor Brent Wilkes guilty on all 13 counts.

The Judge told Wilkes to bring his toothbrush when he comes back for sentencing:

Burns set a Jan. 28 sentencing date for Wilkes, warning the defendant that he usually remands convicts directly to prison custody.

Looks like the jury believed the prostitutes over Wilkes, who testified in his own defense. And once again, a laughing jury doesn't bode well for the defense.

Wilkes also faces a second, 30 count federal bribery trial with his childhood friend, former CIA Executive Director Kyle Foggo.

    does this horrorshow, masquerading as a republican administration, end? give them credit though, it only took them 12 years to do what it took the dems 40 years before them to accomplish: become totally corrupt, as individuals and a party.

    hopefully, the current democratic leadership will learn something from this.

    unfortunately, all I see them caring about learning is how not to get caught.
