Not sure who in the world scheduled this appearance, but racist, arbiter of public corruption and convicted felon Jack Abramoff was at Beverly Hills High yesterday to plug his new memoir Capitol Punishment. The LA Times’ Stephen Ceasar was at the event and penned this nausea-inducing graph:
[Abrmoff] spoke of his time as a powerful lobbyist with ties to Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill, commanding rates of as much as $150,000 a month from a single client, which drew “oohs” from the teenagers.
How was this asshole allowed to come anywhere near children wearing anything other than prison blues? Well, Abramoff is a Beverly Hills High grad, you see. And…he’s turned his life around…or something, and become, according to the Times, “an unlikely foe of the role and influence of special interests in Washington.”
