Indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff has reportedly sued the U.S. Congress for breach of contract, and unjust enrichment, claiming that he paid large sums of money to buy Congressional votes but many in Congress are reneging on those deals. "Can you imagine a country where you pay for a cup of coffee and it never arrives? Or shelling out a couple hundred bucks for a tune-up on your car only to find that nothing was actually done? Well, that's what the United States Congress is trying to pull on me, on all of us, right now."
"How could the federal government turn on me like that?" wonders Abramoff. "It's mine. I paid for it fair and square."
