I don't think we have had something of this scope, arrogance and sheer venality in our lifetimes.

Jack Abramoff is already under indictment for his role in a real estate fraud in Florida, a scandal which netted, among the defendants, 3 members of the Mafia, but this is small potatoes to the corruption and influence peddling empire he created. In the future, historians will not refer to Teapot Dome or Tamany Hall when referring to the largest case of corruption in US history, but to Abramoff. This scandal is not only going to take down a lot of high profile Republicans, but a few high profile Democrats as well. Tom Delay's political dealings in Texas are nothing compared to what is coming up, although Delay is also linked to Abramoff, and is about to be in Federal legal hot water as well.
