Washington - Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has a new talk radio show to offer advice on reforming politics.

Premiere Networks, part of Clear Channel Media, announced Wednesday that “The Jack Abramoff Show” has debuted on XM Satellite Radio’s “Talk Radio” channel. It airs Sundays from 5 to 8 p.m.

Abramoff went to federal prison for corruption. He says he may be the nation’s “most controversial radio host” because he was involved in the money-based political culture he says needs an overhaul.

Producers say the Washington-based show offers the unique perspective of a political insider. It’s being produced by the same unit that features Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ryan Seacrest and other personalities.

Abramoff was released from prison in 2010, then spent six months working at a Baltimore pizzeria.

Read Jack's book about his experience in prison and you will be blown away!
Listen to a piece of his show and you will hear the breath of fresh air that we need to clear out the stench that is eminating from CNNLGBT and MSNBCLGBT.

I don't understand why all of these criminals get to ride their crimes and/or fraud and/or deceit to success.

Jack Abramoff, Elliot Spitzer, Oliver north, Dick Morris, etc.

These liars, fraudsters and criminals always find a way to turn their crime into some kind of celebrity lifestyle. What does it say about people who given them their celebrity?

It tells me that the idiot masses of this nation (on the left and the right) don't care about what is true or false. They don't care about the integrity of the SOURCE of their information. The only thing they care about is that their preconceived notions, prejudices, and unsubstantiated beliefs are validated by someone with celebrity.

Generalizations will get you in trouble all the time.

Ever hear of the concept of teshuvah? Have you ever talked to Jack Abramoff? Did you read his book?

Personally, my answer to all three is yes, and I do not doubt his integrity.

Are you kidding me?

When Abramoff was working at a pizza shop, I believed teshuva could possibly his path. Getting himself a radio show (and a possible TV show is in the works too) is just feeding the same overblown ego that got him in trouble in the first place!

You are a deluded fool.
