(CNN) - Disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff was transferred Tuesday from prison to a Maryland halfway house to serve out the remainder of his sentence, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Prisons told CNN.
Abramoff, who has been in prison in Cumberland, Maryland, has a scheduled release date of December 4, 2010, according to the Bureau of Prisons Web site.
Abramoff was the central figure in a corruption scandal that ultimately led to charges against numerous lobbyists and public officials. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to a series of public corruption charges and subsequently cooperated with investigators.

I just love hearing about the players in the republican 'culture of corruption." Maybe he can get a job with Fox news, as he appears to meet all the criteria.
All lobbyists should get life without parole for killing our country with their shenanigans.
I wonder if his cell mate, Spike, will miss him.
That tells a lot about our Judicial system.
The gop must have a heue a heck of a lawyer
Back in the good old days when the Repubs ran congress...
Economy great, unemployment low... crooks got investigated...
Now... the dems control everything... and nobody gets investigated, sweep it under the table, Rangald issue still waiting his re-election to be investigated, economy gone... unemployment all time high, debt at all time high... legislation passing that a majority clearly doesn't want...
Thanks Pelosi and friends...
He will be hired by Fox News as an expert on Political matters for all kinds of discussion along with the big baloney Dick Morris.
Another Republican completes his prison term so he can now go back to work and this time he knows what to do so he does not get caught again.
Bet he won't have trouble finding work when he gets out.
Why aren't his Republican friend in jail with him?
what? how is this justice?
we are screwed... we let this man out.
