It’s odd to see who Jack Abramoff was actually representing. All of the big industries (construction, military, healthcare, unions) are absent. He represented the small fish on the great leviathan food chain, which makes me think that the big fish are so entwined with the existing legislators that they don’t need to lobby.
I predict that this will have no effect whatsoever on the party make-up of anything, even if people do go to jail. Sadly, no one will think of this as a good reason to resort to term limits either, which would help matters a lot.
