Abramoff Doing Deals…

1

Is this going to bring down the powerful politicos?

Prosecutors in the case declined to comment. Abramoff’s Florida trial is scheduled for Jan. 9. A hearing for Kidan to enter a new plea has been scheduled for next week, a development reported yesterday in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “We don’t have a signed plea agreement yet,” Conway said. “It is certainly going that way, but it is not totally done yet.”

Stephen L. Braga, Scanlon’s attorney, said: “That’s a very surprising development that will only increase pressure on Mr. Abramoff to cut a deal.”

Neal Sonnett, a Florida lawyer representing Abramoff in the SunCruz case, declined to say whether his client is in plea negotiations with the government. Andrew Blum, a spokesman for Abramoff’s Washington attorneys, also declined to comment on whether plea negotiations are underway.

Personally, I don’t care if this investigation fingers Dems or Repubs. If dirty pool has been the standard operation procedure, it’s payback time. And let the “chips” fall where they may…

In other words…it’s time to clean house…
