Jack Abramoff is in jail. This is for his conviction in Florida for fraud. He will continue to cooperate with attorneys on the Washington bribery case. Federal officlials were concerned that being in prison in Pennsyvania might make it more difficult to carry on the Washington case, so he was moved to the closer Maryland facility.
Abramoff arrived at about 6:30 a.m. EST at a relatively secluded prison facility in western Maryland and began to serve a nearly six-year prison sentence for a fraudulent deal to buy a fleet of casino ships in Florida.

Stephen Finger, executive assistant at the prison, said all inmates work while there. Incoming inmates such as Abramoff typically are assigned to menial jobs such as food service work. Finer said that inmates can work their way up from low-level jobs paying 12 cents an hour to better positions paying up to 40 cents an hour.

It's nice to see a white collar criminal doing time. I think that all criminals should serve time even while they are appealing their cases. That's one of the glaring inequities of our justice system, the rich delay prison by appeals, the poor go to jail.
I hope Jack doesn't have too difficult a time adjusting to the new pay scale. Perhaps it will build character! Maybe he will find God in prison and see the error of his way. In any event I hope he has a very long time to think about his crimes.

So Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rize left to face their crimes.

I just hope justice will prevail this time.

Right after the 26 Democrats that he named as accepting His bribes.

(probably for the FIRST time!)

GREED and CORRUPTION see no Color or are just parts of one Political Party.

But as usualy Justice will get RAPED.

...And Justice For ALL

Halls of Justice Painted Green
Money Talking
Power Wolves Beset Your Door
Hear Them Stalking
Soon You'll Please Their Appetite
They Devour
Hammer of Justice Crushes You

The Ultimate in Vanity
Exploiting Their Supremacy
I Can't Believe the Things You Say
I Can't Believe the Price You Pay
Nothing Can Save You

Justice Is Lost
Justice Is Raped
Justice Is Gone
Pulling Your Strings
Justice Is Done
Seeking No Truth
Winning Is All
Find it So Grim
So True
So Real

Throw them all in jail- Sing sing would have been the perfect place, maybe there's something comparable nowadays.

Dems and Reps alike.

Give 'em all a fair trial, and then toss 'em all in the clink. Agreement across the political spectrum? My goodness...did the world shift while I was asleep or something?

It is good to see an influence peddler answer for criminal behavior. It'll be even nicer to see some of the oh so shocked polititions answer for their behaviour too.

Now that I have a Metallica song stuck in my head,

I'll add a Megadeath song to go with the DC is corrupt theme.

Symphony of Destruction YouTube video link

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads aroll

Just like the pied piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony...
Of destruction

Acting like a robot,
Its metal brain corrodes.
You try to take its pulse,
Before the head explodes.

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
Awarring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall

Rock on, and may they destroy themselves in their own hell fire.
