    Are you implying that no Dems were complicit in Jackoff's mis-dealings or that the Justice dept is going to go balls to the walls to indict? It's already been widely reported that many a congressman/senators from both sides of the chasm, ahem, I mean aisle, that have something to hide about this guy.

    Assuring the judge he is working to become “a new man,” disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff was sentenced Wednesday to nearly six years in prison for committing fraud in the purchase of a fleet of gambling boats.
    He will remain free while helping prosecutors with a vast bribery investigation involving members of Congress.
    Abramoff, 47, and former business partner Adam Kidan, 41, received the minimum under federal guidelines: five years and 10 months.

    Abramoff pleaded guilty in the SunCruz fraud in January. The same week, he pleaded guilty in Washington to defrauding Indian tribes and other lobbying clients out of millions of dollars. He also agreed to cooperate in a corruption probe that could involve up to 20 members of Congress, including former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas. No date has been set for his sentencing in that case.


    Now we have the Justice Department investigation to look forward to. Anyone wanna take bets on how many Democratic members of Congress get indicated.
