He Knows Jack

The Washington Post is continuing its groundbreaking coverage of the congressional lobbying scandals. "Former DeLay Aide Enriched By Nonprofit" by R. Jeffrey Smith reveals that Edwin A. Buckham, a former top advisor to ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, and his wife, Wendy, made more than $1 million over five years from the U.S. Family Network, a nonprofit group created by the Buckhams. The money mostly came from clients of lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who has pleaded guilty to charges of fraud, conspiracy and bribery. I'm glad the Post isn't resting on its well-deserved laurels and is continuing to investigate the Abramoff mess.
