Perhaps Washington's most notorious former lobbyist, Jack Abramoff will be the guest at our Tenth Anniversary Q&A Cafe, happening Tuesday, November 29, at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown hotel. Seating will begin at noon, the interview will begin approximately 12:30. The fee, as before, is $50, all inclusive of lunch, tax and tip, and valet parking is available at a discount. Reservations are required. Please call: 202-912-4110. (Some people are having trouble w/ the number, i.e. "no answer." In that case email your reservation to me here, until the Ritz gets the phone thing sorted out.)
Abramoff's new book is "Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America's Most Notorious Lobbyist." I'm hoping we will have it for sale at the show. The interview will air on Channel 16 (DC Cable) at 8 pm on Friday December 2 and other dates after. He was sentened to six years in prison after pleading guilty to mail fraud and tax evasion. He was released after 43 months. Many others were caught up in, served time or lost their jobs due to the case.
Abramoff has a lot to say about how Washington really works. Don't miss this one.
