More Sordid Abramoff Tales

I'm not how many of the sleazy activities outlined in this WaPo piece on Jack Abramoff's lobbying tactics are illegal, but I feel like at least some of them ought to be! It's a long article, outlining Abramoff's campaign to kill an anti-gambling bill in the House at the behest of one of his clients. It has the potential to be a great political thriller novel: forged letters, payoffs, congressional staffers leading their bosses by the nose ... but this all actually happened. Highly recommended.

The real scandal is never what is illegal, but what is perfectly and done all the time.
