Who's Sorry Now?
Apparently not the Jackster, or should we say Jokester....he can't seem to get to the apology phase just yet. But he has been busy. It's all over the news how he's contacted 260 of his closest friends to conduct a letter writing campaign on his behalf in his sentencing in the wire fraud portion of the SunCruz case in Florida.
Ok. Fine. They say, "Go with what you know" and lobbying, in the purest sense of the word, is what this guy knows. We do find it kinda funny that he's apparently "ashamed" for the movies he made in the 1980's because the "Hollywood politics" made him put offensive language in the film. But, as this Raw Story article points out, he made the film under aparthied in South Africa, maybe partly funded by the SA military... So goes the story of the Jokester...a man living a double life.
All joking aside, let's remember that the Jackster is in deep doo-doo. We stand by our assertion that he is deeper in the murder beef than the lobbying and that's his bargaining chip...he rats out the US Congress in exchange for whatever happened in the murder that touches him going away.
From JackInTheHouse "No anecdote seemed too small to mention. Dr. Gene Colice told the judge about the time Abramoff tried to "find a lost hamster on a Friday night." And Attorney Laurence Latourette called his racquetball playing partner as someone who "always acts honorably, and will call himself on infractions."
"But U.S. District Judge Paul C. Huck said he would delay their prison reporting date for several months so Abramoff and Kidan can continue cooperating in a Washington corruption investigation and a Florida probe into the murder of former SunCruz owner Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis." (AP here)
