Down Goes Jack

Republican super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff will be indicted on fraud charges later this week, according to numerous published reports, in connection with allegations that he bilked Indian tribes and other clients out of tens of millions of dollars.

Abramoff is a graduate of my alma mater Brandeis, and this is believed to be the highest-profile indictment of a 'deis alum since Angela Davis was brought up on charges by the FBI for her ties to the Communist Party, in 1970. (But that's only because Mitch Albom's fabricated article broke no laws).
