JACK ABRAMOFF: Attempting to Repair Our Democracy

JACK ABRAMOFF: Attempting to Repair Our DemocracyHi, everyone. I’m new to blogging, so this is an exciting experiment for me.

I’ll be posting more serious pieces next week. But, for now, I just want to say how honored I am to join Nick Penniman, Josh Silver, and the gang at United Republic in the vital effort to effect real reform in Washington.

It is a privilege for me to add my insights and experience to their strong and sagacious team and I look forward to working with them to reveal to our nation the way Washington really works.

There is a rising tide of outrage in our land about the abuse in our system. Sadly, in my former life as a lobbyist, I participated in this dysfunctional and byzantine world. But now, in these pages, and with my other efforts, I intend to do what I can as we all attempt to repair our democracy.

So I hope you come back to the Republic Report often, and that you do whatever you can to help broadcast and amplify the good work being done here.
