A new scandal assuming political and economical dimensions has played havoc with the US political system. The new disclosures were prompted by former prominent Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty of charges of fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion. He also revealed that he participated in a ring bribing Congressmen. He further added that he intends to reveal the names of the Congressmen he bribed, thus causing a racking headache to the Bush administration, which has not yet survived more recent scandals.
