Murtha and ABSCAM

ABSCAM was an early 1980s scandal in which phony Arab businessmen (actually FBI agents) offered cash bribes to several congressmen. Everything was videotaped.

"You know, we do business for a while, maybe I'll be interested, maybe I won't." -Jack Murtha to Undercover FBI Agent Offering him a $50,000 Cash Bribe

This runs 13 seconds -- audio of Jack Murtha being offered cash, bribes, during the Abscam sting. He turned this down at first but then says later, "I'm not interested -- at this point." He was an unindicted coconspirator!
