Pay To Play

  • The pay-to-play K Street Project continues to thrive in Washington.
  • DeLay's infamous pay-to-play system between lobbyists and government officials, the K Street Project, continues to thrive, despite House Minority Leader John Boehner's (R-OH) promise to dismantle it. Although Abramoff is already in prison, his network of government cronies continues to be uncovered. On Tuesday, the Justice Department convicted the 11th person in the Abramoff investigation. Mark Zachares, former aide to Rep. Don Young (R-AK), "pleaded guilty Tuesday to accepting tens of thousands of dollars in gifts" from Abramoff. The court documents contained bad news for Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL), who is listed as "Representative #3" and now being questioned by FBI officials. Feeney is one of three House members who accompanied Abramoff to lavish golf trips in Scotland.
