What do they all have in common? They are the subjects of a single Federal subpoena, and guess what? There are dozens more connected with this subpoena.

Sing along with me, folks............

Hail, hail, the gang's in jail.

Oops, meant to post this in the Political Scandal Forum. Could one of the mods move it there? Thanks, and sorry about that.

Oh, there's more, lots more. Thing is, Abramoff has been involved with shady business dealings for a long, long time. I don't know if they'll ever find out the depths of all his illegal activities. :shock:



Separately, several former Abramoff lobbying partners have told the Globe that a key connection between Abramoff and Russia is an obscure Dutch firm called Voor Huisen.

Voor Huisen was one of Abramoff's biggest clients, paying $2.1 million in lobbying fees to Abramoff and his partners from 2001 to 2004, according to public records that were filed by Abramoff in the US Senate.

<snip>

Voor Huisen has been shrouded in mystery, and is rarely mentioned in the thousands of articles about Abramoff. A Dutch magazine, Vrij Nederland, reported last month that Voor Huisen was a shell company that had no activity and no assets. Dutch records do not list any shareholders.
