ANALYSIS: It's hard to imagine the U.S. as a place where citizens have to fear overzealous prosecution, but last week's reversals in the cases of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and five New Orleans police officers are part of a troubling pattern reminiscent of the Soviet criminal justice system — a system in which the state is always right, even when it is wrong.
The Democratic Party is battling scandals from New York to San Diego and from city hall to Capitol Hill, as the party finds itself on the defensive over embarrassing lapses ranging from sexual misconduct to multiple scandals ensnaring the Obama administration.
Despite the return by President Obama and the Democratic Party of a tainted $10,000 donation from D.C. fundraiser Jeffrey E. Thompson, dozens of other federal and local campaign committees, Democrat and Republican alike, continue to hold on to tens of thousands of dollars they have received from the contractor now at the center of Mayor Vincent C. Gray's deepening fundraising scandal, records show.
Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has a new talk radio show to offer advice on reforming politics.
A group of Republican senators is pressing Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to immediately appoint an independent counsel to investigate an "avalanche" of national security leaks.
From the District's lawsuit against him to his plea to stealing public funds, former D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr. has made few comments in public without a barrage of attorneys to insulate him from the heavy scrutiny of the media.
Not many headlines, it seems, are inspired by the Creator these days: Just 19 percent of Americans say reporters and the news media are "friendly" toward religion.
Disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who says he once made $20 million in a year before going to federal prison on public corruption charges, wants to produce movies and a reality television show. And he would like to help reform the political system he exploited for years.
Jack Abramoff can't say he wasn't warned.
Washington trade groups say a proposed new Obama administration rule sharply curbing the ability of federal employees to attend industry shows or interact with those they regulate goes too far.
A former congressional aide named in the Jack Abramoff scandal avoided prison Thursday when a federal judge questioned why lawmakers tied to the convicted superlobbyist had successfully skirted prosecution while many of their staffers ended up in prison.

The last remaining defendant in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal was convicted Thursday in a Washington federal court in what will likely prove to be the final trial stemming from the most notorious Capitol Hill corruption case in recent memory.
It may have looked like boom times for earmarkers in 2006, when they carved out a record $29 billion in projects — but little did lawmakers realize that a perfect storm of events the year before had set the clock ticking on pork.
Audiences for politically charged dramas based on actual events don't always get the whole truth.
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.
Abramoff said he is working on a reality television show focusing on corruption in Washington, hoping it "gives insight into what goes on in this town."
