The House that Jack bought

Access to a who's who of "superlobbyist" Jack Abramoff's GOP allies in the House.

Jack in the House, a new site launched by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, rounds up the doings of GOP "superlobbyist" Jack Abramoff, whose buying of big influence in Congress is no small secret. Abramoff is currently under investigation by the Justice Department, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, the IRS, the Department of the Interior and the FBI.

The site has an interactive wall of honor displaying Abramoff's allies, including a half dozen congressmen, and such illustrious figures as Ralph Reed, Grover Norquist and, of course, the currently quite popular Tom DeLay. It also offers one-step access for making your feelings about Abramoff's buddies known to the chairman of the House Ethics Committee.
