Abramoff to prison
The Repug corruption kingpin reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to charges in DC and Florida. In exchange for the reduced charges, Jack 'off will apparently be spilling the beans on the scum he's been financing for years. Tom DeLay will hopefully be squashed like a bug. I have serious doubts as to whether this will ever get close to going far enough. The prosecutors are federal, which means they work for Torture Gonzales and his idiot boss. Even if W and TG don't have the guts to just fire the prosecutors and pardon Abramoff, they might declare him an "enemy combatant" and whisk him off to some country-club prison in the Marianas where he'd never have to speak to anyone except waiters and caddies. National security, y'know. Because if Jack 'off tells everything he knows and the prosecutors act on it, he might bring down W and most of the congresscritters who support him. And our pResident is above the law--just ask him.
