Description: This portrait of Washington super lobbyist Jack Abramoff -- from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah -- confirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney once again wields the tools of his trade with the skill of a master. Following the ongoing indictments of federal officials and exposing favor trading in our nation's capital, Gibney illuminates the way our politicians' desperate need to get elected -- and the millions of dollars it costs -- may be undermining the basic principles of American democracy.
