The Abramoff BLOB, going to eat all of K Street alive

Oy gevalt! So, what do you want to know? Anything first-hand?

Washington Post examines the Abramoff Scandal
by Joe at

"This thing is breaking open. Everyone's involved: Congressman and their wives, Senators, staffers, Bush administration officials.

"This was the epitome of the GOP's K Street project: The 35 to 40 investigators and prosecutors on the Abramoff case are focused on at least half a dozen members of Congress, lawyers and others close to the probe said.

"The investigators are looking at payments made by Abramoff and his colleagues to the wives of some lawmakers and at
actions taken by senior Capitol Hill aides, some of whom went to work for Abramoff at the law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, lawyers and others familiar with the probe said.

"Former House majority leader Tom DeLay (R), now facing separate campaign finance charges in his home state of Texas, is one of the members under scrutiny, the sources said. Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.), Rep. John T. Doolittle (R-Calif.) and other members of Congress involved with Indian affairs, one of Abramoff's key areas of interest, are also said to be among them, (and of course, there's Robert Ney (R-OH))."

Another Blogger POV - not pretty (this guy is clearly wearing a tin-foil hat!)
