Guilty, guilty, guilty!!!
Attorney Says Lobbyist Abramoff Reaches Plea Deal in Florida Fraud Case
Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors to plead guilty to two criminal charges stemming from the 2000 purchase of a fleet of gambling boats, his attorney said Tuesday.
Abramoff will also agree to cooperate in any ongoing federal investigations in Washington, said his Miami attorney Neal Sonnett. Prosecutors there are investigating several members of Congress who allegedly received favors from Abramoff or his clients.
Can Tom DeLay’s second indictment be far behind?
It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
