Abramoff Colleague, DeLay Aide Keeps Talking

Yet another sign that the Abramoff investigation is progressing.

Tony Rudy pled guilty back in March to accepting bribes and helping Abramoff bribe lawmakers, Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) chief among them.

Apparently he’s being cooperative, because prosecutors have asked that no sentencing date be set for Rudy until October “in order to allow Mr. Rudy’s cooperation to continue uninterrupted.”

As we’ve said before, Rudy’s cooperation is particularly bad news for Ed Buckham, Tom DeLay’s right-hand lobbyist. Rudy and Buckham, both former top aides to DeLay, worked closely together at the now-defunct lobby shop Alexander Strategy Group.

And if Buckham decided to plea out, things would get very, very interesting.
