Abramoff pleads guilty

Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty in a plea bargain that is expected to lead to his testifying against members of Congress or congressional staffers.

Meanwhile, Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle subpoenad a bunch of documents from Abramoff's former law firm and from the tribes that he represented.

UPDATE: link added. DeGuerin's reaction:

DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin says Earle is an opportunist who issues subpoenas to try to make a connection between his case and the latest scandal -- whatever it happens to be.

DeGuerin says Abramoff has nothing to do with the case in Texas.
