The Abramoff Galaxy

Jack Abramoff is negotiating a possible deal with federal prosecutors to plead guilty and cooperate with their investigation into corruption in Washington. For more than five years, Abramoff was one of the capital's most prominent Republican lobbyists. E-mails, documents and interviews with his former associates show that he set up many interlocking political and business entities to raise money, pay for lawmaker trips and other favors, fund his pet projects and gain influence for himself and his clients. The Justice Department has been looking into his relationships with a half-dozen members of Congress, as well as with Hill aides, government officials and business associates.
