Abramoff out of prison, will he join McDonnell's reform commission?

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.

I've been googling combinations of names: Bobby Thompson, Jack Abramoff,Helen Mac Murray, Bob Ney and if you've been reading the St Petersburg Times you know where I'm heading.

I smell the "stench" of a major slush fund at the heart of this USNVA thing.

Interesting to find someone exploring the same area?
