New Documentary, Capitol Crimes, Now Available Online.
Veteran reporter and TV news host Bill Moyers offers an extraordinary new documentary that examines corruption in Washington D.C.
The documentary centers on the activities of corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff. This goes into the dark side of so-called "American Democracy". It also shows the influence of the Conservative religious movement in politics. It shows how unprecedented the level of corruption is in Washington D.C., providing the American people with a peek at the greed and misconduct taking place on Capitol Hill.
The Congress, particularly a certain Party (The Republican Party), has turned into an organized crime team- operating much like the Mafia once operated in this country.
Side Note: How can the White House say that they hardly knew Abramoff, when he was actually a close friend of the White House and well known to the Republican Party....so well known that he spoke at all sorts of events and Conventions? The Corporate (State-Run) media in the U.S. never asked the right questions on this issue to expose the lie about Abramoffs connections to top officials.
Summary from the PBS website for the documentary:
"It's a dizzying scope of perfidy and politics that boggles the imagination, and although Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay have been brought down, the system remains as vulnerable as ever," says Bill Moyers. "The scale of corruption still coming to light dwarfs anything since Watergate. In one sense it's the age-old tale of greed, but greed encouraged now by the way our system works. Deep in the plea agreements of Jack Abramoff and his cronies is the admission that they conspired to use campaign contributions to bribe politicians; campaign finance is at the core of the corruption. They took great pains to cover their tracks, and they might have pulled it off except for a handful of honest people, and the work of some enterprising print reporters, Senate investigators, and the ethics team at the department of justice. Following the money in this story leads through a bizarre maze of cocktail parties, golf courses, private jets, four-star restaurants, sweatshops - and the aura of chandeliered rooms frequented by the high and mighty of Washington."
