“It's a dizzying scope of perfidy and politics that boggles the imagination, and although Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay have been brought down, the system remains as vulnerable as ever.”- Bill Moyers
This week on BILL MOYERS JOURNAL (KCET-TV)
With former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who is already serving five years and ten months, expected to be sentenced on other charges next month, Bill Moyers takes viewers back to the scene of the crime in this update of CAPITOL CRIMES, an acclaimed documentary investigating the Abramoff lobbying scandal. The program examines the web of relationships, secret deals and political manipulation that exposes the use and abuse of power in American politics. In this update of a report that aired in 2006, Moyers and his colleagues untangle emails, reports, interviews and facts on the record to reveal an astonishing pattern of criminal and political chicanery.
