Ambramoff in the news today!

Is this prophetic or what? (read the last 2 postings below) In the news today is something on the Jack Abramoff scandal. Former Deputy Interior Secretary Steven Griles of the Bush Administration has decided to plead guilty to one count of obstruction of justice in the Jack Abramoff corruption investigation. The former No. 2 official at the Interior Department has agreed to a felony plea admitting that he lied five times to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee and its investigators about his relationship with Abramoff.

Griles effectively was Interior's chief operating officer and its top representative on Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force. Abramoff persuaded his Indian clients to pay him tens of millions of dollars to influence decisions coming out of Congress and the Interior Department. Part of his pitch to clients was that he had serious pull at the department, especially with Griles.

For the rest the complete story read it here.
