Murder, Inc. Part Deux...

or Lobbyists with Dirty Faces?
Witness for the Prosecution - Abramoff's plea agreement could land him in the middle of a murder trial or Hollywood blockbuster!
I can see the reviews now..."One of the greatest films of George Clooney's film career playing Jack Abramoff who is a career criminal, who, immediately after getting out of the clink, meets up with Brad Pitt his former partner in crime (Tom DeLay!), who of course is a priest now and loathes the life Jack leads. Abramoff is also preoccupied with a bunch of no-good kids in the Young Republicans who of course idolize him.
Seeing this, DeLay thinks Abramoff should lead the kids to good. But Jack is too busy getting even with his old business cronies (Gale Norton, Chief Choctaw, Bob Ney and Karl Rove!). This film is a lot fun, most especially watching Clooney and Pitt on the screen together again. For those rather uninitiated with the career of Clooney (eg, just seen The Facts of Life and the Ocean's Eleven movies), this film may come as a revelation to you, as he plays a cretinous heel here. And Pitt? Ahhh, what's not to like? He's flawless here, (well, except his curious hair style). As for the Young Republicans, I liked them here, rather interesting that Kid Rock and Britney Spears almost are in the background here with small cameos, with their leadership of the group not yet realized."- Generic DOJ Movie Critic

FYI, a young aide in my office wrote that humorous review. Of course I must remain impartial in such matters.

Coming to a theater near you. The movie should be rated "G." It sound like a 21st century version of the Looney Tunes...

Special prosecutor Fitzgerald and Biloxi,

That review really told us all we need to know about florida politics, didn't it?

Dirty crime, murder, and the drug mafia.....election fraud ?
report on florida

By the way here's some interesting news from the voting side of things.....it appears the Supreme Court is going to be taking on trial a historical lawsuit on behalf of our elections!!!

lynn landes goes all the way to the supreme court: challenges constitutional right of voting, arguing that it must be transparent

"In her lawsuit Landes claims that, as a voter and a journalist, she has the right to direct access to a physical ballot and to observe the voting process unimpeded. Voting by machine or absentee, Landes claims, introduces obstacles and concealment to a process that must be accessible and transparent in a meaningful and effective manner.

Landes is representing herself in this action.



"I tried to get civil rights organizations interested in this case, but had no luck. Their disregard for this issue is incredible. It's clear to me that without direct access to a physical ballot and meaningful transparency in the process, our elections have no integrity whatsoever," says Landes.

The defendants in the Landes lawsuit are Margaret Tartaglione, Chair of the City Commissioners of Philadelphia; Pedro A. Cortes, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; and Alberto Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States.



Attorneys for the defendants have successfully fought Landes, claiming that she did not prove an injury and therefore does not have standing. Landes counters that she has the right to challenge the constitutionality of acts of the legislative branch under federal statute and case law, most significantly under Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1803).

Early American history seems to favor the Landes position. Prior to the Civil War, voting was a public and transparent process. It was only after the war, as the elective franchise expanded to minorities and women, three changes to state and federal election laws were adopted that eventually made the voting process a private and nontransparent enterprise: absentee voting was allowed (1870's), the Australian secret ballot method was adopted (1880's), and voting machines were permitted by Congress (1899).



Today, 94.6% of all votes are processed by machines and approximately 30% of all voting is conducted early or by absentee."


Well well....Did Abramoff have something to do with this, I think its time to get rid of all the voting machines....clean elections, or else aren't you just electing more crooks ?

Thanks for telling us that Fitz. Now Jack could apply for a role as girlfriend of an inmate. I think Bush and company should be awarded best liars for 5 years and still standing. Fitz good news The Lion,whitch and the wardrobe and Wallace & Garmet and Harry Potter were nominated for Oscars I know that makes you happy. Oh I have a thought maybe Libby and Jack will go to Fox River jail in Chicago have Michael Mason check that out. There might be some guys that are lonely.
