Another one bites the dust -

Last week Michael Scanlon also pleaded guilty

Scanlon, a 35-year-old public relations executive, agreed to pay
$19.7 million in restitution for kickbacks he admitted receiving as
part of the conspiracy to defraud his and Abramoff's clients.

The actions of Scanlon and Abramoff first came to light in September
2003 when e-mails exchanged by the men were exhibits in a Senate
Indian Affairs Committee hearing.

Lobbyist is charged with conspiring to bilk Indians

The duo openly exulted over the "millions" they were raking in from
Indian clients they described in writing as "idiots" and "morons." In
an e-mail, Abramoff said of the Tigua tribe of El Paso, "We need to
get some $ from those monkeys!!!!"

Should be the theme song for BushCo's second.

Or maybe "It's Raining Congressmen". :-)
