If a man becomes a criminal. Then he admits his guilt. He does his time, and honestly expresses a desire to make good, he deserves a chance.
If we can accept Mike Tyson:
then we can give Jack Abramoff a chance. Ok, he's a conservative, and he's still a conservative, but he just might be telling the truth for the right reasons.
Maybe I'm a sucker, but I believe he wants to fix the system that he profited by.
Jack Abramoff is a convicted felon. He admitted his guilt. Did his time. He deserves a chance to make good. He deserves a chance to be given a chance.
Not letting him have his website is petty.
Jack Abramoff wants his name back. But House Democrats own it and they are going to keep it.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee owns the rights to the Web domain name “jackabramoff.com,” having secured it in 2006. [...]
Abramoff called the DCCC last week to ask - very politely - if they would be so nice as to give up the name.
But the DCCC has no intention of doing so.
“Jack Abramoff can try to rehab his image, but glowing press stories and being back on the D.C. cocktail circuit don’t change the fact that Abramoff is a convicted felon who went to jail for being the heart of Republicans’ ‘Culture of Corruption,’” said Jennifer Crider, the DCCC’s spokeswoman. “We didn’t forget, Jack and anyone who visits jackabramoff.com won’t either.”
Abramoff, for his part, isn’t pleased to hear about the DCCC’s stance, and he threatened legal action to get control of the name.
