Bribes and Deceit

Noel Hillman, the chief prosecuter in the Jack Abramoff corruption case, has resigned so that he may take a position as a federal judge, which was offered by President Bush. This comes as Jack Abramoff, a noted republican lobbyist, has been accused of handing out money, much of which was illegally diverted from Native American funds. Further outrage came when Pres. Bush declared that he did not know Abramoff and had no connection with the man, photographs may say otherwise, but the said photos have not been made public. Many members of Congress have been accused of accepting funds from Abramoff. Noel Hillman, is chief of the Office of Public Integrity, which is part of the Justice Department.
