Spier: Abramoff Train Has Left The Station....

...and there are quite a few ugly Americans on board.

Today, Jack Abramoff, shown at left leaving federal court in Washington today, signed a plea agreement and the allegations against him were made public. Pick it up at Americablog.

Catch a read, it's all all about bribes and corruption. Race to Addendum A, #32, "Corruption of Public Officials". Representative 1 is obviously Bob Ney (R, Ohio). #33 makes reference to "public officials". Bob Ney is not alone. A few congressmen here, a few staffers there and you have the makings of good scandal. The stew might also get some red meat like Conrad Burns. DeLay is cooked.

No Democrat took money directly from Abramoff, but a few received some from Indian tribes. The only one who might be a bit exposed is Byron Dorgan D/ND) ranking minority on the Indian Affairs Committee. Probably not though. But,George W. Bush, Ken Lay, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Duke Cunningham, Ralph Reed and Jack Abramoff are all Republicans, and all are corrupt to the core.

Although the government did not tip its hand on other targets (besides the obvious Ney), Abramoff has been ratting out republicans for over a year. The allegations against Abramoff for ripping off of Indian tribes should net Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed and other crooks. You could just xerox parts of this agreement and substitute their names.
