Jack is Back and he has a computer! Politico notes Jack Abramoff only follows 4 Twitter accounts. One is Politisite. Same thing Happened when Scott Rasumussen came to Twitter, we were in his top 3 accounts for almost a year. Proves that Politics has some real strange bedfellows.
And if we might share a plug, Folks know where to go for Political News.

Jack Abramoff, who modestly describes himself as “one of the world’s most famous lobbyists and former Washington power players,” has ventured into the brave new world of Twitter with hyperactive abandon.Abramoff stayed silent since August 2009, when the account was registered. But starting with his first tweet on November 6, like a horse out the gate, he’s averaged eight tweets a day and quickly amassed 837 followers.The “man who bought Washington” only follows four accounts: 60 Minutes, Politisite, Byron York, and Occupy Washington. Go figure.
Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist (9781936488445): Jack Abramoff: Books
The name Jack Abramoff is synonymous with Washington scandal, but the fascinating facts of his case are either largely unknown or wildly misunderstood. His memoir will serve as a corrective – an engrossing, informative work of political nonfiction that is also a gripping real-life thriller. The biggest surprise twist comes in the form of Abramoff himself, a smart, funny, charming, clear-eyed narrator who confounds every expectation of the media’s villainous portrait.
He’s a perfect bundle of contradictions: an Orthodox Jew and upstanding family man with a staunch moral streak, caught in multiple scandals of bribery and corruption with an undercurrent of murder. Abramoff represented Indian tribes whose lucrative casinos were constantly under threat from proposed changes in law; though he charged the tribes many millions, he saved them billions by ensuring votes to support the livelihoods of their reservations. Much of Jack’s share was funneled not into his own coffers, but to charities. Abramoff on the front pages could not be further from the Jack Abramoff who’s ready to tell his honest and compelling story.
