Are anchovies Kosher? (Little Jackie gets a post prison gig at an unlikely place)
Abramoff To Work At Tov Pizza
June 21, 2010

Phil Jacobs
Executive Editor

Jack Abramoff was serving time in Western Maryland.

Now, hell be serving pizza in Baltimore.

Well, sort of.

Abramoff, 51, is a Capitol Hill lobbyist and businessman who pled guilty in 2006 to felony counts related to his lobbying and political activities.

That is all behind him now.

Through the good graces of Tov Pizza, which has served this community for more than 26 years, Abramoff will begin to rebuild his life.

Out of a halfway house, he now works with Tov owner Ron Rosenbluth in almost all areas of the restaurant business, with perhaps a focus on marketing strategies. Abramoff was owner of a kosher restaurant in Washington, D.C., and has experience in the kosher food industry.

Because he is still under the authority of the Bureau of Prisons, Abramoff could not be interviewed by the Baltimore Jewish Times for this story.

But he is working at Tov already, and has started what will be at least a six-month stint there transitioning back into the community.

Jackie, I hope they gave you new clothes.

1. So? He's working in a pizza parlor. What's so wrong with that?
I'm glad he's having to work with the sweat of his brow. So I don't really care. As long as he's not lobbying and ripping people off, he can work whirling pizzas AFAIC. Let him sweat...

2. as i understand it, the scumbag is in "marketing"
I used to like Tov Pizza the last time I was there about 9 years ago. Not anymore. I heartily endorse Petes Pizza as the best kosher pizza in the country, bar none!

3. Why do you assume "wrong"?
Snarky thread title.

A wish for a better wardrobe.

A straight clip from a straight news story.

From that you assume "wrong"?
