Abramoff released from Md. prison

By Washington Post editors

The Federal Bureau of Prisons says disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff is at a halfway house somewhere in the mid-Atlantic region after his release from a federal prison in western Maryland.

Spokesman Edmond Ross said Wednesday that Abramoff was released Tuesday from the minimum-security federal prison camp near Cumberland.

He was sentenced in 2006 to nearly six years in prison for a fraudulent Florida casino deal.

How terrible. He should be in jail for many many years to come. He committed sick crimes. He's a perverted man who probably knows Tom de Lay should be there with him.

It hasn't been six years yet. As a Native American I demand he be incarcerated for his full term.

He can join Delay killing cockroaches in Texas. I hear insecticide does miraculous things to your nervous system.
