Abramoff to 'Name Names' at Sentencing

There will be no lengthy sentencing delay for Jack Abramoff. A judge today refused that request by his lawyers. Abramoff lawyer Abbe Lowell told the court,

Abramoff attorney Abbe Lowell warned that critical information about the ongoing corruption investigation could be publicly disclosed in order to demonstrate the level of Abramoff's cooperation in that probe. That information could affect Abramoff's sentence in the fraud case.

Update: Sentencing is March 29, but Abramoff likely will be allowed to remain free while he continues to cooperate.
