Abramoff Pleading Right Now

According to MSNBC, Abramoff has been sworn in and is currently entering his plea in federal court. Am reading through the plea deal and will post more as I get it.

Thought everyone would like a fresh thread while we are sifting through all the information.

(And yes, that is a hatching chicken. Couldn't help myself.)

UPDATE: For those coming in fresh to the Abramoff story (and where have you been?!?):

-- More on the Kidan plea.

-- On Bob Ney.

-- And some background on the Scanlon plea and the law that the DoJ has been trying to work within to get to dirty members of Congress.

UPDATE #2: TalkLeft has more, including some great background on Abramoff's defense lawyers.
