Abramoff seeks friends on Facebook
By In the Loop columnist Al Kamen
In June, when last we checked on our pal Jack Abramoff, he'd completed 43 months in the slammer for fraud, corruption and conspiracy and was keeping a low profile, working in a kosher pizzeria in Baltimore.
But maybe he's lonely for his pals. He's newly up on Facebook, and he's got six friends so far, according to U.S. News and World Report's Washington Whispers. One of his pals is GOP activist Floyd Brown, a leader in the Clinton impeachment effort who runs a Web site called www.impeachobamacampaign.com. He's also the founder of Citizens United, the group whose successful Supreme Court case has unleashed a wave of secret corporate contributions, apparently mostly for conservatives, in the current mid-term election cycle.
The Facebook photo shows a determined-looking Abramoff sitting in front of a chain-link fence. Unclear if he's inside the fence or outside.
