Jack Abramoff: Start Singin’, You Little F#@$&!
2006 may be known as the Year of the Canary. Enron’s Richard Causey has already agreed to name names and show skeletons in return for a lighter sentence. And now Jack Abramoff has pleaded guilty to tax evasion, conspiracy and mail fraud.
In return for his reduced sentence, he has to squeal. “Make a noise like a pig.” Heads are gonna roll.
After the Crash of 1929, they used to joke that the weather forecast called for a 30% chance of stockbrokers. Maybe we’ll get a wicked storm later this year: watch out for falling politicians and Enron executives.
Just for fun, why not vote here: Do you think Abramoff’s corruption scandal is unusual, or just the tip of the iceberg?
As many as twenty lawmakers may be outed when Abramoff starts squealing. DeLay is Abramoff’s best known accomplice.
Here is a list of some other future rolling heads. Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, has a possible bribery case pending against him for his dealings with Abramoff. Senator Conrad Burns, R-Montana, had multi-million dollar corrupt dealings with Abramoff and various Indian tribes. Ditto for Rep. John Doolittle, R-CA.
A gang of thugs has been controlling our government. It’s been fun, but the free ride is almost over. It’s time for their house of cards to start collapsing.
