The 25th anniversary of Abscam passed recently, and without a lot of fanfare... These days Abscam is dwarfed by the scandal that threatens to eat Washington. The Jack Abramoff mess is so much bigger than Abscam it has no name other than his. The investigation spans at least four law enforcement agencies and 12 FBI field offices, and may easily exceed Abscam's convictions.

The Abramoff affair takes powerful officials from Capitol Hill to the South Sea Islands, where they learn about the previously unknown virtues of sweatshops.
