New Step for Jack Abramoff: Watchdog Blogger
Since Jack Abramoff served his three-and-a-half year prison sentence, he has written a tell-all book, given a lecture on ethics to the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission, and now he is becoming a watchdog blogger.
Abramoff will be working with United Republic’s Republic Report, a blog that started just this month.
According to Abramoff’s first blog post from February 3: “Hi, everyone. I’m new to blogging, so this is an exciting experiment for me.
I’ll be posting more serious pieces next week. But, for now, I just want to say how honored I am to join Nick Penniman, Josh Silver, and the gang at United Republic in the vital effort to effect real reform in Washington.
It is a privilege for me to add my insights and experience to their strong and sagacious team and I look forward to working with them to reveal to our nation the way Washington really works.”
For news coverage read: “Jack Abramoff has unlikely second act as watchdog” by Melanie Mason in the Chicago Tribune.
