Smilin' Jack receives his first indictment:

MIAMI, Aug. 11 -- Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday and federal agents were searching for him as part of a wide-ranging wire fraud case stemming from the purchase of a Florida casino cruise line from a businessman later murdered in Fort Lauderdale, sources close to the case said.
I like the mention of DeLay in the sub-head. They're looking for Abramoff in southern California at the moment. This indictment (if you don't have your scorecards out, you'd better get them handy) is for the Florida stuff ONLY; not related to the Indian Casino lobbying scandals being investigated by the Senate.
