GOP Lobbyist Jack Abramoff Sentenced to 4 More Years – I’m betting on a pardon!

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced former GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff to four years in prison for his role in trading expensive gifts, meals and sports trips in exchange for political favors.  Abramoff will serve this sentence concurrently with his current jail sentence of defrauding of American Indian tribes and corruption of public officials.  After college Abramoff ran for College Republican National Chairman where he was quoted as saying “It is not our job to seek peaceful coexistence with the Left, our job is to remove them from power permanently.”  If you would like a refresher on all of the details make sure to check out the section… Overview_of_criminal_and_political_investigations.

Anyone want to place a bet on whether George Bush will pardon Abramoff before he leaves office in January?
