He's Baaaack. Abramoff and the US Attorney scandal

Our favorite wannabe gangsta is back.
We knew it was only a matter of time before the Abramoff's (and, oh, probablly the Dusty Foggo/Carol Lam connection as well, come to think of it) name resurfaced. For the record, Post An Apology has maintained that Abramoff had something more to do with the SunCruz Casino murder of
Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis. Think it may come out now?

TMP Today, the nonpartisan congressional watchdog Democracy 21 sent a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty asking whether there had been political interference in the investigation and prosecution of Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

"Based on issues that have been raised in the firing of the eight U.S Attorneys , we're all in a position to want some assurance that there hasn't been political interference in the case," Fred Wertheimer, Democracy 21's president, told me. "This still remains the worse congressional corruption scandal in 30 years. There are lesser players who have been convicted. But there are still big players here, including sitting and former members of Congress whose cases apparently have not yet been resolved. "
