Washington For Sale
With lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleading guilty to conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion we may be looking at the start of the biggest story for 2006. Abramoff apparently took a plea deal where he will sing the names of those whose influence he bought and the list could take down a fair number of key politicians and could see others go to jail. The MSM isn't jumping on this story with the blood in water frenzy I would have thought but maybe that will change. And as yet another example of my previous post many stories, and talking heads (like Pelosi), immediately opined this was evidence of the corruption of the Republicans in general. While it is likely to be a serious problem for some Republicans there are plenty of Democrats who took green from Abramoff.
