another republican headed for jail

Prosecutors are recommending prison for former deputy secretary of oildrilling and mining, I mean, former deputy secretary of Interior, Steven Griles. Griles had the habit of asking everybody's favorite Republican lobbyist, Jack Abramoff, for favors. Especially for close female acquaintances, like lady-friend Italia Federici.

Griles already entered a guilty plea to charges that he lied to investigators about his relationship to Abramoff. A natural instinct, given the stink rising from Abramoff. But still a crime.

The bigger crimes, which won't result in jailtime for Griles, include his propensity to always ignore any environmental concern in favor of big oil, mining, and other business interests, whose activities weren't always exactly good for the environment.
