Abramoff to plead guilty

Do you think it's because he knows he's up Shits Creek without a paddle? Abramoff's guilty plea and subsequent sentencing will have huge implications on Democrats and Republicans alike since he had his hands in a lot of things.

The plea deal opens the prospect that Abramoff could provide testimony about members of Congress and congressional staffers in a wide-ranging political corruption investigation focused on his lobbying activities.
Or could it be that his co-defendant was going to testify against Abramoff in order to save his own skin?

His co-defendant in that case, Adam Kidan, agreed last month to plead guilty to conspiracy and wire fraud and to testify against Abramoff.
