Let Abramoff off?

The Abramoff case just goes to show that there are some advantages to being "well-connected."

More than 260 people wrote letters asking a federal judge for leniency when Abramoff and a former partner are sentenced, which was scheduled for Wednesday. Both pleaded guilty to conspiracy and wire fraud stemming from the 2000 purchase of a gambling boat fleet.

If I were the judge, I'd add a month sentence for every letter.

Maybe they could start investigating each of the 260 to see if they where part of the conspiracy too.....

Great idea!

Probably the same guy that wrote all those letters to Gov. Schwartzy, claiming to be sitting judges, asking for lienency... Ken Star.

Isn't that illegal? Do the Repubes ever do anything legal anymore? It's been all crime all the time since Dicky Nixon.

A month added to the sentence for each letter (lol)...
