    I'm glad to see he's going to prison for his role, but I'm not happy about the reduction in sentencing for his alleged 'addiction'. It just seems too convenient for me, I guess. Of course, if all the other Congressmen involved with Abramoff got similar treatment, it'd be peachy.

    yeah -- do addicted drug offenders get reduced sentences from their mandatory sentencing laws?

    i'm much more interested in seeing corrupt public officials do long sentences than some kid busted for selling pot to his friends.
