Republican Culture Of Corruption - DC

It look like the Republican Bagman, Jack Abramoff, may be ready to cop a plea.

WASHINGTON - Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist who may be facing an array of fraud and corruption charges, has been talking with prosecutors about a deal that would grant him a reduced sentence in exchange for testifying against former political and business associates, people with knowledge of the case said.


Since he was the boss, it is clear that the target will now be politicians. The pucker factor inside the republican offices must be at an all time high.

Now, I know that some of the true koolaid addicts will try to claim that he gave equally to both parties, but that talking point should be dead.

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. President George W. Bush calls indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff ``an equal money dispenser'' who helped politicians of both parties. Campaign donation records show Republicans were a lot more equal than Democrats.

Between 2001 and 2004, Abramoff gave more than $127,000 to Republican candidates and committees and nothing to Democrats, federal records show. At the same time, his Indian clients were the only ones among the top 10 tribal donors in the U.S. to donate more money to Republicans than Democrats.

The point being? what is discosed here? nothing! That there are contributions
from both sides is a "given"
This has always been and always will be.........It is about the "Result."Bush has laid back too long, and his recent attacks were perhaps too light. Personally I would have named Names and party. Lets get real here! We have 150,000 troops doing their duty, and these nay sayers are only trying to degrade their efforts. This in it's self is a treasonable offence. Just maybe?....We should put supporting our military above the political game.
Bush has stepped up to the "plate" answered the problem, and CAME with an ANWERE, which is better than the defeaticrats can do.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Just a question.

What, exactly, does Abramoff, have to do with our attack of Iraq?

As to what was disclosed.

Nothing, yet.

What will most likely be exposed is just how corrupt the Republicans in America are.
