TPM: Jack Abramoff goes back to the DC scene to promote book
Thursday, November 17, 2011
Filed Under: Abramoff Scandal
More on: books, dc, jack abramoff
 
"“My life has taken a bit of a turn,” lobbyist-turned-felon-turned-reform advocate Jack Abramoff told the crowd assembled in Tucker Carlson’s living room in Northwest D.C. on Tuesday night. “I used to be a right-wing guy who sort of disdained the New York Times, 60 Minutes and Michael Moore. Now, I’m happy to be on 60 Minutes, I love the pieces in the New York Times and Michael Moore is my new best friend.”

Meet Abramoff 2.0. Sixteen months after his prison term from the most infamous Washington corruption case in recent memory ended, Abramoff was addressing an audience of journalists and friends about how his world has been turned upside down. In the midst of a publicity tour for his book Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist — Twitter feed, Facebook page, snazzy website, the works — Abramoff said he knows his new stances on reform aren’t earning him any friends.

“It’s an extraordinary thing. I’ve obviously come out and taken some positions that some people in this town are not as thrilled about and I’m saying some things that probably a few people aren’t happy about, but it is what it is,” Abramoff said."
