Newt: The ultimate Beltway swindler
You maybe should think twice when even Jack Abramoff thinks youre beneath contempt. Not that Newt Gingrich cares.

Abramoff, Americas favorite convicted influence peddler, told NBCs David Gregory that presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Gingrich is one of those people who came to Washington, who had public service, and they cash in on it. They use their public service and access to make money.

Newt, he continued, is engaged in the exact kind of corruption that America disdains. The very things that anger the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street movement and everybody who is not in a movement and watches Washington and says why are these guys getting all this money, why do they go become so rich, why do they have these advantages?
