Feds: Misconduct by CIA's Foggo stretched decades

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Prosecutors say a former top CIA official soon to be sentenced on corruption charges had a history of misconduct stretching over two decades.

Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, of Vienna, Va., is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in federal court in Alexandria as part of a bribery investigation that also ensnared former California congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham. As executive director from 2004 to 2006, Foggo held the CIA's third-highest rank.

In court papers, prosecutors say Foggo's misdeeds began in the late 1980s when he punched a bicyclist during a traffic dispute while stationed overseas. They also say he breached security by engaging in multiple relationships with foreign women.

The papers say that if Foggo had not been caught, he intended to run for Congress in California.
