A Growing Market For Soap On a Rope

Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to another set of felony charges today, this time in the state of Florida.

In response to the growing scandal, a number of congressmen from both parties have begun returning contributions they had received from the former lobbyist. Even President Bush has been touched by this recent turn of events as his campaign gave back $6,000.

It's damn noble of all these politicians to be tripping over one another in an effort to return the tainted funds. Of course, some cynics may argue that it would have been even MORE admirable if they hadn't taken the money in the first place, but that's just silly. After all, it's only a crime if you get caught.
