Moyers on Abramoff

MOYERS ON ABRAMOFF….One reason that the Foley scandal probably has more legs than the Abramoff scandal (besides sex, Sex, SEX!) is that it’s nice and simple. The Abramoff scandal, by contrast, is mind-numbingly complex.

But now there’s a way for you to catch up. Bill Moyers is returning to PBS and the first episode of his new show is “Capitol Crimes,” a 2-hour roundup of the Abramoff scandal and its related web of corruption. It’ll be airing Wednesday at 9 pm and it’s probably worth watching. A 3-minute preview is up on YouTube here.
