Former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell is facing a federal indictment in a scandal allegedly involving at least $165,000 in illegal gifts, luxury vacations and big loans -- but he's far from the only politician accused of selling out.
Remember former Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham, who resigned from Congress in 2005? The California Republican infamously kept a so-called "bribe menu" for defense contractors that outlined his payment demands in exchange for legislative favors.
Or what about former Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.)? He grabbed national headlines in 2005, when federal agents raided his Capitol Hill home and found a $90,000 cash bribe -- wrapped in aluminum foil and stuffed in the freezer. He was later convicted for bribery, racketeering and money laundering for illegally promoting his business deals in Africa. The scandal landed Jefferson a 13-year prison sentence -- the longest ever for any member of Congress.
And then there was former Illinois Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich. He was charged with soliciting bribes for an open Senate seat, after then-Sen. Barack Obama -- you might've heard of him -- resigned to become president.
