Abramoff Ready To Flip On Senate Dems

Abramoff ready to flip on Senate Dems, Rove (6-8 Dem Senators)

ABC News

Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff is scheduled to report to federal prison tomorrow, over the objections of federal prosecutors who say they still need his help to pursue leads on officials he allegedly bribed.

Sources close to the investigation say Abramoff has provided information on his dealings with and campaign contributions and gifts to "dozens of members of Congress and staff," including what Abramoff has reportedly described as "six to eight seriously corrupt Democratic senators."

Abramoff has been meeting almost daily in secret locations around Washington with Justice Department investigators who are examining thousands of e-mails and documents, according to sources close to the investigation. The convicted lobbyist was spotted in downtown Washington, D.C., yesterday, carrying a computer laptop case.

But the prosecutors' easy access to Abramoff has now ended.

After granting several delays, the federal judge in Florida, who sentenced Abramoff to six years for fraud in a casino boat gambling scheme, has ordered him to report to prison tomorrow.

ABC News has learned that the court has granted a request from prosecutors that Abramoff be incarcerated at the closest prison to Washington, D.C., the Federal Correction Institute in Cumberland, Md., where Abramoff is expected to report tomorrow.

Harry Reid will be one of the nervous ones about this. Now that does make me smile.

Tom, I hope so too. I don't care who did wrong in either party I want them all to be honest. So if anyone has done wrong let's get it all out. THat way in the next election maybe, God willing we can clean house too. Of course the Dems would vote for a criminal no matter what, they sure love their Clintons and they are huge criminals. augh!

Hopefully he's not a friend of Bill's, Clinton is the only man that so many of his friends seem to turn up dead. This guy got a track record of losing people, permanently. Makes me wonder how come algore is so lucky. But then again just look at the pathetic algore, he is an overgrown dwarf with a BeeBee for a brain.
