Jack Abramoff's new gig is pizza man

By Al Kamen
Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, out of a halfway house after 43 months in federal prison, is back in restaurant business, working at a Baltimore pizzeria, according to the Jewish Times of Baltimore.

Abramoff, who once owned a D.C. restaurant and a truly awful kosher deli, is working at Tov Pizza, helping its owner "in almost all areas of the pizza business, with perhaps a focus on marketing strategies," the paper reported.

Stand by for his reality show...

Nothing quite shoots one's star to the pinnacle of celebrity like being a convicted felon and scumbag.

The SOB will most likely get a whole sale Pizza Contract for US Federal Prison System.

The reasons you don't see Obunker's personal documents like the Cert. of Live Birth, signed by a doctor, the college transcripts, the medical history, is that there are some lies told about the documents such as dates and locations and claims of citizenship OR NOT, and subsequent status as a FOREIGNER, etc.

In other words, the Press hasn't done its job and shows no sign of wanting to.

But, if a druggie at Rolling Stone says McChrystal called Obunker a bad name......THAT, the Press will jump on.

How in the dickens did he get out in so short a time. Did someone smuggle him a "GET OUT OF JAIL" card? He going to have a hard time convincing me that he took the pizza boy delivery job so he could pay off the mega-millions he owes!

Oh, I have it! He's helping the pizza man out by developing a new marketing strategy.

They are probably in the development stages of marketing:

Short-sell sausage
A Futures veggie w/optional egg on top - beats egg in the face, I guess

I thought he got 10 years? What is he doing stealing a job from some deserving teen who never stole from Native Americans in order to finance a lavish lifestyle and the undermining of American democracy? And why didn't prosecutors put more preasure on him to get rove and norquist. Jack certainly had plenty of evidence to put those two creeps behind bars where they belong.

He's served his time, leave him alone and let him work out his future. Never letting up on someone that's made mistakes is uncivilized. At least he's taking responsibility for himself, give him credit.

Jack is out of jail already? I guess that means all the people he robbed aren't poor anymore. Man,I'd do 43 months for even just ONE billion, let alone what that guy got away with.

Hey chuckles, you must be thinking of Madoff.
Liberals are so smart.

White collar scum gets off easy, considering how many people he hurt. Less than 2 years ago he was sentenced to 4 years and he's already walking. I hope he dies in a fire.

Hey, this guy's working instead of taking more from the U.S. government like millions of deadbeats do. He made big mistakes but he IS WORKING. Just look at the tons of people taking handouts from our govt. who are able to work and could work in a food establishment but instead take our tax dollars from the good ole govt. or stand on street corners up cups and make lots of $$$$.

Well, since I live in the Baltimore area, I'm sure I could harass the guy a little bit if he works the register.

Hopefully Mr. Abramoff can get his life together soon.

Republican Leader Abramoff making pizzas? Well...we haven't heard ONE PEEP form "oilman" Dick Cheney since this BP disaster, have we? Where could he be hiding? Maybe somebody should start searching all the Taco Bell kitchens in America.

Hey, Jacko. Gus Boulis says hello.

....And now his people know where you are.
Enjoy life, baby. It's been known to end abruptly.

A warning to Tov Pizza though...guys,I'm not sure your new worker is completely Kosher.

They'd better keep a sharp eye on the cash register.

This guy will be back in the biz (indirectly, I imagine there are some legal/regulatory barriers to his direct involvement) by the middle of next year.

Posted by: tjconnor | June 22, 2010 6:27 PM | Report abuse

He must be working for the Pepperoni Lobby now!
