Re: Jack Abramoff
Q: Guess where a lot of former Representatives and staffers for congressional members go to after their stint at the U.S. Capitol?
A: Some lobbying outfit.
Makes it unlikely that anything will ever change. I get very disgusted it with it myself. I have a close relative who worked as a staffer for 15 years. The stories I have been told are disgusting. If it looks like a bribe and smells like a bribe... it is a bribe. We have come up with terms like "lobby" to make it legitimate.
That relative of mine? Now works for a D.C. law firm who represents lobbying outfits.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
