Calling out the Right, Republicans and other jerks in politics

Justice is served…with pepperoni

with one comment


Remember this guy?  Quite possibly the most infamous lobbyist of our time, Abramoff was THE face of political corruption during the Bush administration, bringing down (or at least ending the careers of) such recalcitrant republican scumbags Bob Ney (r-OH, bribery), Tom DeLay (r-Dancing with the Stars), Conrad Burns (r-MT, lost seat), John Do0little (r-CA, lost seat), former Turdblossom Aide Susan Ralston (resigned), former Bush Interior Secretary Stephen Griles (obstruction of justice)…oh, its a long list.

Many would say Abramoff got off easy, copping a plea with prosecutors by pleading guilty to 3 felony counts and working with investigators to chip away at the vast republican corruption network.  Facing a maximum of 10 years, Abramoff squeaked out with a mere 4 in a minimum security prision.

Of course, the really big fish was too just too slippery.  George Bush, ever the picture of honesty, “didn’t really know” the man who personally raised more than $100,000 for Bush’s re-election bid, the man who charged lobbyists $25,000 a pop to meet the former president face-to-face, the man who stood with him holding a giant check…aww, never mind, just look…

Said Jack in 2008:  “I’ve fallen into an abyss.  My name is the butt of a joke, the source of a laugh and the title of a scandal. … I hope this horrible nightmare ends at some point.”

So did we.

But now its Abramoff’s turn to give the pizza industry a bad name.  Abramoff was transferred to a halfway house 2 weeks ago, about 6 months before the end of his sentence, and has found new employment at a Kosher Pizzeria in Baltimore.

Rumors that he is charging republican lawmakers $25,000 each for access to the kitchen in back are unconfirmed…to date.

  1. Oh that’s rich. Like Abramoff used to be! Good to see him rolling up the sleeves and getting greasy, because lord knows, there was no grease in those skids before.
