Nice hat, Sparky:

Abramoff pleads guilty to Florida fraud

MIAMI (Reuters) - Lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty on Wednesday to defrauding lenders in a Florida casino- ship deal and agreed to help prosecutors in a Washington influence-peddling probe that could involve top Republican lawmakers.

I'm sure Faux News is screaming at the top of their lungs that it's not just DeLay and crew that was on the pad.
Fine with me, toss them all in the clink if you have to, but you know that it's the repugs this time that will outnumber everyone else when it comes to this guy and his funny-money..

The Miami plea comes a day after Abramoff pleaded guilty to other fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion charges in Washington on Tuesday. His sentence in both sets of charges will be based in part on his cooperation with prosecutors in the corruption case.

Man, you know this guy needs to go to a Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison!
He and DeLay can be the new fish.
Then again, some think this guy might be wired to some big time thugs, so maybe they'll get to him first:

In Miami, Abramoff pleaded guilty to conspiracy and fraud charges and acknowledged he faked documents used to get a $60 million loan to buy the SunCruz fleet of gambling ships in 2000.
The man who sold the SunCruz ships to Abramoff, Gus Boulis, was shot dead in an ambush on a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida street in February 2001. Three men were charged last year in the killing.

If this guy has info on a couple Miami goombas, look for his bloated body to show up in a ditch somewhere as alligator food.

Speaking of Faux News, did you see Bill O'Reilly on Letterman the other night? Dave skewered him. It was awesome. If you missed it, you can catch it on the Late Show site.

Abramoff sounds like a real prince.
