Republican Lobbyist Jack Abramoff Sentenced to 4 Years In Prison

and here's a list of all the people who have been convicted in the Abramoff Republican scandal.

Jack Abramoff, John Albaugh, Robert E Coughlin II, Italia Federici, Rep Bob Ney, Steven Griles, Tony Rudy, David Safavian, Michael Scanlon, William Heaton, Neil Volz, Mark Zachares, Roger Stillwell, Adam Kidan.

And don't forget that when John McCain did his investigation of the Indian Tribal Lobbying scandal, he PURPOSELY left out Gale Norton, as well as other republican co-horts - as this link states, he took $100,000 from Abramoff's firm.

Indeed, this past week, the Democratic National Committee put together a memo challenging McCain's assertion that he was a corruption hound while investigating Abramoff. The document and some government watchdog groups note that while McCain put pressure on Jack Abramoff and several prominent Republicans, he also went out of his way during the Indian Affairs Committee hearing to spare his congressional colleagues.

"Although Sen. McCain has long bragged of his role in the Abramoff investigation, he let Tom DeLay and the other members of Congress who were doing Abramoff's bidding completely off the hook. The sole exception was Rep. Bob Ney, who is now serving time in prison," said Melanie Sloan, Executive Director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics In Washington. "Sen. McCain knew what his colleagues were up to, he chose to take the easier path and give them a free pass."

Neither McCain's office nor the Indian Affairs Committee returned requests for comment. In the past, McCain has claimed that it was not his responsibility to "involve ourselves in the ethics process [of Senators]."

And who can forget McCain's ties to crook Ralph Reed?
