In the span of 10 years, Jack Abramoff rose from near obscurity to become America’s most powerful lobbyist. Congressmen lined up to do his bidding, executives heeded his advice, and heads of government hung on his every word. But when scandal brought him down—ultimately casting him into disgrace and even prison—this power broker said nothing. Now a free man, Capitol Punishment is Jack Abramoff’s autobiographical exposé uncovering the mysterious and corrupt world of federal politics. He reveals just how broken the system really is while shedding light on the drastic corrective measures needed to repair it. Jack’s back, and this time he isn’t pleading the Fifth.
Jack Abramoff is the author of “Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth about Washington Corruption from America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist.” He works to reform the system inside the Beltway.
