Abramoff sent to halfway house-"somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region"

Read entire article here:

"He was sentenced in 2006 to nearly six years in prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud involving the purchase of a Florida casino cruise ship. In 2008, he was sentenced to four years for his role in a wide-ranging corruption scandal that led to the convictions of former Rep. Bob Ney (D-Ohio) and other lobbyists and Bush administration officials."

Note: ...but...but...my government and Cass Sunstein discourage theorizing about "conspiracies" yet they, hypocritically, charge lots of people and convict many on conspiracy charges. Seems confusing unless one takes into account who benefits from all this skulduggery. Take a look below...

" INVESTIGATION — ABRAMOFF INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI, JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, AND INTERIOR DEPARTMENT: “The FBI, the Justice Department’s public integrity section and the Interior Department inspector general are investigating Abramoff’s lobbying practices, focusing on tribal clients that paid him and a public relations associate $82 million between 2001 and 2003. Among the areas investigators are examining, former Abramoff associates and tribal representatives said, are whether legislative favors were granted in Congress in exchange for tribal campaign contributions, and whether Abramoff opened doors on Capitol Hill by wooing congressional aides with the promise of jobs, as well as tickets to sporting events, trips, meals and other gifts.” [Washington Post, 9/28/05]"
