Everything Must Go..!
From AP - Silver-plated candelabras. A cedar-lined lingerie cabinet. Persian rugs. An oak hutch carved with lions' heads, tree limbs and acorns.
The spoils from former Rep. Randy ''Duke'' Cunningham's bribery scheme -- a household of valuable antiques, rugs and home furnishings -- will be auctioned off by the government Thursday to help cover the back taxes and restitution he owes.
The public was given a preview Tuesday of the loot, which was laid out in orderly rows in a warehouse near Los Angeles....
There is a leather sofa. A solid cherry sleigh bed. Nearly a dozen rugs. Marble-topped nightstands, armoires and sideboards, many featuring stained glass, brass fittings and intricate carvings.
''There's a real mix of different styles -- Art Deco, French provincial, American pioneer,'' said Britney Sheehan, who works for the company that will auction the goods.
