Abramoff to be Probed in Murder Investigation

The Jack Abramoff story is getting more and more disturbing as time goes on. The fact that Tom DeLay is still playing politics in Washington D.C. is a perfect example of how the national political scene has degenerated into a corrupt and deviant system of power players. Considering the scandalous connections between Abramoff and DeLay is a frustrating and demoralizing project for me.

It is time to take the corrupting influence of money out of politics. How about this for an idea: Let's convert to a fully public funded electoral system!

March 24

A judge has approved subpoenas for ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a former business partner to answer questions about the mob-style slaying of the owner of a gambling fleet they bought.
Abramoff and Kidan are not charged in the slaying. Their attorneys did not return telephone calls or e-mails seeking comment Friday.
