Another guilty plea because of Abramoff

This isn't brand new news; I blogged about this Interior Department employee back when it first came to light. Roger Stilwell pleaded guilty on August 11th to "a misdemeanor charge for failing to report gifts he received from lobbyist Jack Abramoff."

Of course everyone's waiting to see what the implications of this are. It's not like anybody's surprised there was a corrupt employee at the Interior Department. You can see what this reporter is focused on in this sentence:

Documents filed as part of Stillwell's plea do not indicate whether he is providing authorities with evidence against others who may be involved.

That's what we all want to know: how far does it go and who else will it bring in?
