In this hour, Jack Abramoff. He’s hardly a murderer. But to many in the Beltline, he’s the devil incarnate. Senator Conrad Burns, said ´´I wish he’d never been born.” Congresswoman Deborah Price said, ´´He is a creep, and we hate him.” Paul Begala summed it up when he said on Crossfire ´´Jack Abramoff, he’s scum.” How did this guy earn such vitriol? Jack Abramoff was the notorious lobbyist at the center of one of Washington’s most far-reaching corruption scandals.He served four years for fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials. His testimony brought down dozens of other public and elected officials. And he still owes 44 million dollars in restitution. Abramoff is out of jail now, and he told Anne Strainchamps he intends to spend the rest of his life making amends.Next, there’s one devil we NEVER sympathize with: the terrorist. But... Hold on. Not so fast, says filmmaker Marshall Curry. His documentary If a Tree Falls follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat.After that, there´s a biblical concept we’ve been talking about – redemption. The dictionary defines it as deliverance from sin. Atonement for guilt. But are there – should there be – limits to the kind of sins that can be redeemed? What about mass murder? And finally, Jim Fleming responds to the documentary film If a Tree Falls that follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat. [Broadcast Date: April 5, 2013] 1.
