Editorial Reviews

"As seen on PBS

"A stunning, carefully documented wake-up call" —The Roanoke (VA) Times

"Powerfully [lays] out the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal" —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Bonus program: Buying the War

Washington super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff came to town to start a revolution but ended up running a racket. Capitol Crimes follows the Abramoff money trail from Indian casinos in Louisiana to sweatshops in the Mariana Islands, from the Capitol Hill offices of the U.S. Family Network to the Moscow offices of Russia’s new oligarchs. What emerges is a tale of politics, greed, and the buying and selling of influence at the highest levels of power. Capitol Crimes shows how Abramoff rode a wave of corruption to enrich himself and promote his causes—and how he took others with him when he fell, including the majority leader of the House of Representatives, Tom DeLay.

The two-hour documentary also includes a Bill Moyers discussion about the scandal with author Thomas Frank (What’s the Matter with Kansas?) and longtime Congress-watcher Norman Ornstein. A special bonus program, Buying the War, examines the failures of the Washington press corps during the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Special Features

Bonus disc with Buying the War (83 min.), an examination of the media’s role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq; segments from Bill Moyers Journal, including A Conversation with Historian and Writer Andrew J. Bacevich (56 min.) and A Discussion with Mother Jones Contributor Kevin Drum and Washington Bureau Chief David Corn (57 min.)

8-page viewer’s guide with articles on the history of the lobbying process and the federal government’s safeguards against corruption.
