Jack Abramoff is a notorious corrupt lobbyist who spent a few years in prison. Now he’s back in the public’s eye, promoting his book, Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist. I suppose one cannot question the author’s credibility on the subject. The book sounds fascinating.
This interview with David Gregory on Meet The Press reminded me of the need to pray for our leaders (I Tim. 2:1-6) as they wrestle with serious issues and are regularly subject to enormous temptations.
Note: It would be the subject of another post entirely, but I don’t necessarily share Abramoff’s opinion regarding Speaker Gingrich. The Speaker still, in my opinion, has a chance to honestly answer questions about his activities with mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
