WaPo article on Abramoff

The Washington Post has an extensive piece today on the probe into Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff and how it affects a lot of sitting Congressmen.


Abramoff is the central figure in what could become the biggest congressional corruption scandal in generations. Justice Department prosecutors are pressing him and his lawyers to settle fraud and bribery allegations by the end of this week, sources knowledgeable about the case said. Unless he reaches a plea deal, he faces trial Jan. 9 in Florida in a related fraud case.

It's a good primer on the story which has been ongoing for a long time now, and looks to be heating up as Congress gets set to return in January.
