Jack Abramoff is a gangster, mobster. He had huge access to the powers that be, because he helped to flood the Republican politicians' coffers with illicit money.
He is no different than Bebe Rebozo was and all the other Mafioso, whether Italian, Irish, Jewish, Cuban, or yes, Anglo-Saxon.
Abramoff and his crew forced their way into unlicensed gambling by taking over Gus Boulis's fleet of gambling boats, called SunCruz Line, operating off Florida. Boulis, a Greek, was murdered gangland style on February 6, 2001.
Abramoff's group promised to put in twenty-three million in cash. They reputedly faked a wire transfer in that amount. The transfer of funds apparently never happened before Boulis was murdered. Abramoff's crew took over the gambling racket without putting anything in and by killing the person who had been claiming the territory.
If you ever wondered why Abramoff looked like a gangster in his trench coat and hat, it was because he is.
After 9-11, employees who then saw Atta's picture said they remembered seeing him as a guest on the SunCruz Line while Abramoff controlled it.
