Dear Jack: Remember- No Man is a Failure who has Friends in High Places
Several hundred friends, relatives and those touched by Jack rose to the occasion to ask the judge for leniency in his sentencing today, including his longtime friend Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) who wrote to - "Over many years, I've known a far different Jack than the profit-seeking megalomaniac portrayed in the press. Jack was a selfless patriot for most of the time I knew him."
Maybe we have Jack all wrong? Wait there's more!
"Friend Monty Warner wrote that Abramoff's glitzy capital restaurant, Signatures, wasn't just for wining and dining lawmakers or hosting political fundraisers. It also was a place where Abramoff gave free meals and advice to friends down on their luck. 'Jack was the kind of person who would offer his guest a glass of water if a server wasn't around to do so,' Mr. Warner said, noting that Abramoff always picked up the check as he counseled friends on financial, marital or career problems."
