Time magazine once called Jack Abramoff “the man who bought Washington.” Abramoff was convicted on corruption charges several years ago, but his legacy left an indelible impact on the political, business and social culture inside the Beltway. We explore that legacy with Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, and a former congressman and a former lobbyist who also were brought down by the Abramoff investigation.
