12/31/2005 Entry: "Government to the highest bidder"

"'This Abramoff guy is a bad guy,' Burns told a Montana television station. 'I hope he goes to jail and we never see him again. I wish he'd never been born, to be right honest with you.'

"Former Republican congressman Mickey Edwards (Okla.), usually a defender of lobbying and Congress, said there have always been members who get caught 'stuffing money in their pants.' But he said this is different - a 'disgusting' and disturbingly broad scandal driven by lobbyists whose attitude seemed to be 'government to the highest bidder.'

"'This is at a scale that is really shocking,' said Edwards, who teaches public and international affairs at Princeton. 'There is a certain kind of arrogance that in the past you might not have had. They were so supremely confident that there didn't seem to be any kind of moral compass here.'"
The Fast Rise and Steep Fall of Jack Abramoff, by Susan Schmidt and James V. Grimaldi, The Washington Post, via TruthOut, December 30, 2005
