Jack Abramoff

Disgraced former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff, the subject of a new film out this past weekend, Casino Jack, will tell his side on Andrew Kreig's Radio Show (December 23, 2010 at Noon Eastern Standard Time or See Archives).

Abramoff served three-and-a-half years in prison pled guilty on January 3, 2006, to three criminal felony counts in a Washington, D.C., federal court related to the defrauding of American Indian tribes and corruption of public officials.  He also worked on behalf of some Internet gambling websites.  The former lobbyist was released from a halfway house on December 3.

Also appearing on the show, according to the Daily Kos, will be Isidro Garza, Jr., the former Kickapoo Tribal Council representative with significant responsibilities at the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino in Texas. 

From the Daily Kos:

"Jack did so much work without charging us," Garza says. "He worked very hard to use his contacts in Washington to help the Kickapoo Tribe get the casino off the ground, and he did a lot of good."  Garza gave the New York Times the first photo of Abramoff at the White House at a meeting with President Bush and a Kickapoo leader at a time when White House officials denied knowing Abramoff. The denial was even though Abramoff's former secretary, Susan Ralston, had moved on to become the secretary of White House advisor Karl Rove.
