Abramoff pleads guilty, now the dominoes start falling

This could be a major turning point in US politics. This guy is believed to be about to testify against a bunch of members of the US Congress. The conventional wisdom is that he'll mostly name Rebublicans, but he'll probably point the finger at some Dems too.

How this plays out could have some very long-term effects.

Lobbyist Jack Abramoff will plead guilty to federal charges in Washington and Miami, clearing the way for him to cooperate in a massive government investigation of influence peddling involving members of Congress, lawyers said Tuesday.
