Summary This portrait of Washington super lobbyist Jack Abramoff - from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah - confirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.A tale of international intrigue with Indian casinos, Russian spies, Chinese sweatshops, and a mob-style killing in Miami, this is the story of the way money corrupts our political process.Following the ongoing indictments of federal officials and exposing favour trading in the nation's capital, Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) illuminates the way politicians' desperate need to get elected - and the millions of dollars it costs - may be undermining the basic principles of American democracy.
