Abramoff Calls Out Gingrich

Note to Republicans: please nominate this grifter!--SS

Abramoff Calls Out Gingrich:

Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff told David Gregory that Newt Gingrich's $1.6 million consulting contract with Freddie Mac to provide "strategic advice" is an example of the corruption that's taken over Washington politics.

Said Abramoff: "People who come to Washington who have public service, and they cash in on it. And they use their public service and their access to make money, and unfortunately Newt Gingrich is one of them who's done it. I don't know if he'll survive this, to be honest with you."

He added that Gingrich is "doing and engaging in the exact kind of corruption that America disdains. The very things that anger the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street movement and everybody who is not in a movement and watches Washington."
