Today, we’ll go in-depth on a story we’ve been following for some time, that of former member of Congress Randy “Duke” Cunningham, now convicted.  Our guest today is Seth Hettena, author of Feasting on The Spoils: The Life and Times of Randy “Duke” Cunningham, History’s Most Corrupt Congressman

 

Seth has spent two years investigating Cunningham and his cronies.  He is currently sitting in the trial of Brent Wilkes, accused of bribing Cunningham.

Feasting on the Spoils is Seth’s first book.  Now a free-lance journalist, Seth got his master’s in journalism at Columbia.  He joined the Associated Press in 1997, and worked in various places. 

In high school, Seth worked on oil tankers and coal carriers running to Panama, Alaska, and the Netherlands.  Born and raised in New York City, Seth currently lives in San Diego with his wife, son, and yellow lab.
