Jack Abramoff's Songbook

They may need to rename "Ring Around the Rosie." Something like "The Jack Abramoff Sing-a-long Contest" might be appropriate. Because when he is through "singing" about Republicans -- they will "All Fall Down."

Since Michael Scanlon -- former DeLay staffer and Abramoff partner-in-crime -- decided to work a deal with prosecutors, it has only been a matter of time before Jack Abramoff himself started singing a different tune.

Abramoff has the goods on dozens of current lobbyists who got their jobs by, shall we say, being very cooperative with Jack. The New York Times, apparently awakened from its long slumber, has a story today on possible "political favors" (aka bribes) traded by Hill staffers for lucrative jobs. Check out FireDogLake for keen insights and additional links on this story.
