Pity the process server: thirteen House members were subpoenaed today in connection with the trial of defense contractor Brent Wilkes (the same gentleman whose bribes helped put former Rep. Duke Cunningham behind bars). Several names on the list of thirteen, who are teaming up to fight the subpoena, will be familiar to regular readers of this page.

Asked to produce both documents and testimony:
Rep. Ike Skelton (D-MO)
Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-TX)
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA)
Rep. John Murtha (D-PA)
Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA)

Asked for testimony:
Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
Rep. Dennis Hastert (R-IL)
Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-MI)
Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI)
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)
Rep John Doolittle (R-CA)
Rep. Jerry Weller (R-IL)
Rep. Norm Dicks (D-WA)

(confidential to Doolittle -- your name keeps popping up in these kinds of scandals. Is this a cry for help?)
