D.C. knows ‘Jack’

Abramoff affair has capital nodding in assent

If you come to Washington, D.C., without a moral compass, you won’t find it here,” joked MSNBC host Chris Matthews at the capital screening of “Casino Jack.”

Matthews and Kevin Spacey, who plays convicted “super lobbyist” Jack Abramoff, were joined by NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell, former Washington Post editor Ben Bradley, Rep. Jane Harmon and others for the Nov. 10 event.

It was the town’s first peek at the film. How will Washingtonian insiders greet it? “Sad to say, the movie is extremely accurate,” said one attendee with insight into the real Abramoff affair. – — Paul Harris
