US Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham, a senior Californian Republican, cried as he quit today after pleading guilty in court to taking bribes, including cash, a yacht and a Rolls-Royce.

The case is the latest scandal to rock President George W Bush's Republicans who dominate the US Congress.

Cunningham admitted taking $3.2 million in bribes in exchange for help in securing US Defence Department contracts.
