The Abramoff Effect

With Jack Abramoff talking, it is not surprising to see others taking note.  For one, AP reports here that state lawmakers are cracking down on lobbying with new laws that prohibit gift-giving in the lobbying industry.

And the Washington Post had a wonderful story here giving detail on the personal side of Jack Abramoff.  The column presents a different side to the Abramoff being portrayed in most papers. One has to wonder if many are deliberately trying to paint Abramoff negatively so that his image will be tainted when he testifies against the politicians and others who might have been engaged in wrongdoing with him.
