A story about this — 2 years ago
Based on a true story that has been called the “Enron of Lobbying,” this film takes some theatric liberties in telling the tale of Jack Abramoff (played by Spacey), a K-Street lobbiest whose greed and hubris knew no bounds. Some real clips of John McCain, Tom Delay and other prominent politicians are interspersed for realism. Scary to think how easy it is to buy favors on Capitol Hill. The influence-peddling reached its peak with Jack. Sadly, it still goes on.
