In the span of 10 years, Jack Abramoff became the most powerful lobbyist on Capitol Hill. Congressmen lined up to do his bidding, executives heeded his advice and heads of governments hung on his every word. But when scandal brought him down – ultimately casting him into disgrace and even prison – this power broker said nothing.
Now a free man, “Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth about Washington Corruption from America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist” is Jack Abramoff’s autobiographical WND Books exposé unveiling the mysterious and corrupt world of federal politics.
Abramoff appeared on CBS this morning, telling the hosts of the “The Early Show” that the public has largely been supportive of his efforts to speak from experience and rip the cover off the depths of villainy in Washington, D.C.
“I’ve gotten hundreds of emails and Facebook messages from strangers and friends, very positive, that they appreciate that I’m honest and open,” Abramoff said, “and that I’m now facing the system and trying to do something about it.”
