Jack Abramoff Spills the LOOT on Congressional Lobbyist | 60 Minutes

This practice is still prevalent in the halls of congress, can’t you tell?

And Jack should know JACK, hmmm?

Jack Abramoff (pronounced /ˈeɪbrəmɒf/; born February 28, 1958) is an American former lobbyist and businessman.[1] Convicted in 2006 of mail fraud and conspiracy, he was at the heart of an extensive corruption investigation that led to the conviction of White House officials J. Steven Griles and David Safavian, U.S. Representative Bob Ney, and nine other lobbyists and Congressional aides. He served three years, six months of a six-year sentence in federal prison before being released early to a Baltimore halfway house on June 8, 2010.[2][3][4]

  1. Did’ja ever notice how these big shot criminals and cheats try to justify their vile criminality by suggesting; “Lot’s of people do it. It’s the way things are done in politics?”
    Jack Abramoff might have not been such a successful traitor to his country had the American people not allowed a slimy sleazeball, Tom DeLay, to be involved in our Congress….especially as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    It was DeLay that worked to force abortion on Asian women struggling in Saipan sweat shops , held wages for these women at levels that were near starvation rates, and caused untold misery for many defenseless young women struggling to survive…..all to garner cash from his “constituents” such as Harry Lee!
    The treatment of this bag of trash on 60 Minutes was FAR to accommodating to this recently released felon who want’s to sell a book!
    He deserves nothing but derision from his fellow citizens whose governmental processes he tried so hard to corrupt.
    Jack Abramoff should rot in hell for eternity….along with DeLay!
