The Abramoff scandal: Guilt, sleaze, and Republican corruption

Jack Abramoff, the tip of the iceberg of GOP corruption, "pleaded guilty to three felony counts in Washington [yesterday] as part of a settlement with federal prosecutors, ending an intense, months-long negotiation over whether the Republican lobbyist would testify against his former colleagues." That according to The New York Times.

Specifically: "[Abramoff] pleaded guilty to conspiracy, fraud, and tax evasion, setting the stage for prosecutors to begin using him as a cooperating witness against his former business and political colleagues. In exchange, Mr. Abramoff faces a maximum of about 10 years in prison in the Washington case."

And then there's the Florida case.

Get ready. The show's about to begin.

And there'll be more here at The Reaction as the story develops. As always, stay tuned.
