Abramoff, Scanlon Still Singing Like Canaries

Fingering Members of Congress is time-consuming work. And according to prosecutors, Jack Abramoff and Michael Scanlon just need a lot more time to give what they’ve got to give.

Scanlon and Abramoff were both scheduled to meet with the judge on June 6th, at which time they might have set a sentencing date. But prosecutors have asked to put that off until September 6th, because they “anticipate that Mr. Abramoff’s cooperation will continue for the foreseeable future,” according to their motion yesterday.

What’s more, Abramoff had been scheduled to hit the slammer on June 28th – that’s when his sentence for the SunCruz fraud was to begin. But prosecutors have asked to put that off for another 90 days.
