A one-time Congressional aide who went on to work with Jack Abramoff has been indicted on public corruption charges. A ten-count federal indictment was returned by a grand jury last month, charging Kevin Ring with conspiring with Abramoff to corrupt Congressional and executive-branch officials by giving them things of value as a reward for helping Ring and his clients. Prior to becoming a lobbyist with Abramoff, Ring worked for a Republican member of Congress, Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA), who remains under investigation in the Abramoff probe. As you probably know, Abramoff was sentenced to four years in prison. There were a number of prominent political figures in Washington who had very close ties to Abramoff and I understand some of them are still mighty nervous.
