This portrait of Washington super lobbyist Jack Abramoff, from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah, confirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. A tale of international intrigue with Indian casinos, Russian spies, Chinese sweatshops, and a mob-style killing in Miami, this is the story of the way money corrupts our political process.

To take a trip back to see Carl R. & Newt G. so young and so tied into the political baggage that we face still today was very eye opening. Great documentary.

OMG! I mean I knew Republicans were hypocritical, but this is just ridiculous. A movie every American should see!

This is a remarkable film better than the fictional Casino Jack starring Kevin Spacey. Try watching both films back to back to see the difference.

And the Seattle connection? (Was a lobbyist in D.C. representing the local Gates law firm. Now why does that name sound so familiar?)

Mind blowing! And then after all the intricate scheming, they openly send emails about their shenanagans and wonder why they got caught! Of course, except for Nay, the rest of the Congressional Bride-Takers got off scott free. Which is why this will continue ad naueum.
