Jack Abramoff targets Dems as part of new super PAC

Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff is attacking Democrats as part of a new conservative super PAC, E&E News reported Tuesday.

Abramoff, who pleaded guilty in 2006 to various corruption charges, said in a fundraising email Monday that "Democrats have no interest in serving the American people."

Case closed," he added in the email, which asked for donations to the conservative Protect American Values super PAC. The PAC was created earlier this month, according to FEC filings.

Abramoff is listed in the email as the PAC's "honorary chairman."

In the email, Abramoff went after the "Green New Deal," Democrats' calls for tax increases and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-CortezAlexandria Ocasio-CortezGreta Thunberg scolds Congress on climate action: 'I know you are trying but just not hard enough' Ocasio-Cortez endorses challenger to Democrat Lipinski in Illinois race The Hill's Morning Report - What is Trump's next move on Iran?

"These socialists are so confused, and their messaging is getting worse by the minute. They seem to think that cows and airplanes are a threat to our future," he added. "Sounds to me like they have been infected by Mad Cow Disease!"

Abramoff was jailed for several years after pleading guilty in 2006 to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials. The charges stemmed in part from Abramoff overbilling Native American tribes he had as clients.
