ABSTRACT
The article reports on U.S. lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his guilty pleas to fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy to bribe a public official. Although he has been sentenced to a 70-month prison term, he has been cooperating with federal prosecutors and FBI agents to comb through materials that document his dealings with members of Congress and the Executive Branch. His cooperation has brought down G.O.P. Congressman Bob Ney and White House procurement chief David Safavian and could affect others.
