I’m not sure fiction can outdo the fact that Jack Abramoff and his partner Adam Kidan had on payroll a couple mobsters who iced their estranged business partner in a streetlight ambush. But Law & Order CI is doing their ‘torn from the headlines’ take on the Abramoff scandal this weekend.

SLAYING OF SECRET SERVICE AGENT HAS DETECTIVES SNIFFING AROUND LOBBYIST, CONGRESSMAN AND INDIAN CASINOS –The brutal beating murder of a female Secret Service agent in her home has Detectives Logan (Christopher Noth) and Barek (Annabella Sciorra) sniffing around the many clients of her husband Jay (guest star David Alan Bashche), a well-connected lobbyist who is working both for and against an unpopular tribal Indian gaming casino on Long Island. But the detectives want to know why the victim’s husband hid their laptop and shredded files soon after discovering her body — and his curious dealings with a slippery congressman widen the police investigation to include more hidden crimes. Jamey Sheridan and Courtney B. Vance also star. TV-14 V
For Law & Order obsessives like those of us in the TPM household it sounds like a treat.
