Disgraced Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff is out of prison and in a halfway house. No doubt he'll be looking for gainful employment as part of his rehabilitation, but with the job market tight, what can Abramoff do?
There are a couple of obvious options. He can go back to work as a fundraiser for his close friend and ally Eric Cantor. The again, Abramoff could get a job with Bob McDonnell's government reform commission. We'll be watching with interest to see how long it will be before Abramoff becomes the employee of a Republican "think tank" like George F. Allen's, pulling down a six-figure salary and trying to stay out of the headlines.
