    Hmmm. If Abramoff was or is such a "good man", then I have to wonder about just how toxic the intrigue of Washingtonian politics really is.
    All those stuffed suits walking around; putting on airs.
    I guess would get to anybody who doesn't have a good sense of self.

    Good men don't do what he did. A place like that just bring out something that's already there, but may be hidden behind a veneer of geniality. I thought the sentence seemed a bit light, given the circumstances, but then I noticed that it was a plea bargain. Which means he plead guilty and is probably going to take down a bunch of others with him.

    Some people may be glad this is finally over, but it may just be starting.

    Not to worry, he's still facing sentencing in the federal case to which he has also plead guilty. I wonder if he'll get concurrent or consecutive sentences....
