The Perfect Villain

Gary Chafetz

$39.95

A classic genre of crime book is the investigation of a criminal defendant who everyone believes to be guilty—and the shocking conclusion that he is in fact innocent. Super lobbyist Jack Abramoff was “the perfect villain.” He was demonized by Republicans and Democrats alike, vilified by the media and trashed even by some of his old friends. Nor did there seem to be much doubt about his legal guilt, which was confirmed by his own guilty plea.

A classic genre of crime book is the investigation of a criminal defendant who everyone believes to be guilty—and the shocking conclusion that he is in fact innocent. Super lobbyist Jack Abramoff was “the perfect villain.” He was demonized by Republicans and Democrats alike, vilified by the media and trashed even by some of his old friends. Nor did there seem to be much doubt about his legal guilt, which was confirmed by his own guilty plea.

In the spirit of Emile Zola’s famous screed “J’accuse”, Gary Chafetz turns the tables on Abramoff’s accusers, most especially Senator John McCain, the Justice Department and the media. He declares them “guilty” and Abramoff “innocent.”

Chafetz conducted his own exhaustive investigation, coupling that with extensive interviews with Abramoff. He concludes that the ruthless prosecutors pressured Abramoff into pleading guilty to a crime that he had already been convicted of by politicians and pundits.
