Who is Jack Abramoff? They made a movie about him starring Kevin Spacey called, 'Casino Jack' see Trailer HERE. From IMDb "A hot shot Washington DC lobbyist and his protיgי go down hard as their schemes to peddle influence lead to corruption and murder."
Abramoff pleaded guilty to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy in 2006. He was convicted for fraud and served 3 1/2 years and 7 months in a U.S. federal prison. He's out now, and is on a speaking tour for his book entitled, "CAPITAL PUNISHMENT' which reveals the tactics lobbyists use to throw votes the way of their clients - which means politicians don't always vote for your interests, but for the promised box seats of a sporting event or a trip overseas. Find out how dirty politics really is! Hear about bribes and other secrets that people don't know about Washington. And... How does this affect Israel?
