Jack Abramoff
Once the most influential lobbyist in Washington, Jack Abramoff presents an inside look at the lobbying industry and the power it has on Capitol Hill. He discussed his insights with Eliza Newlin Carney, staff writer for CQ and Roll Call, covering lobbying and influence.

Convicted in 2006 of mail fraud and conspiracy, he was at the heart of an extensive corruption investigation that led to the conviction of White House officials J. Steven Griles and David Safavian, U.S. Representative Bob Ney, and nine other lobbyists and Congressional aides. He served three years, six months of a six-year sentence in federal prison before being released early to a Baltimore halfway house on June 8, 2010.
