Jack Abramoff Documentary, 'Casino Jack,' By Alex Gibney (TRAILER)

Posted: Updated:

Alex Gibney, the Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker behind the fantastic "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room," will be out soon with a new film about the larger-than-life political villain Jack Abramoff.

Abramoff is the Republican lobbyist who swindled several Indian tribes out tens of millions of dollars and whose influence reached into the deepest levels of the U.S. government. His scandal contributed significantly to the electoral beating Congressional Republicans took in 2006.

He is currently serving a four-year prison sentence.

Check out the trailer below. It's so entertaining you almost how infuriating the story is.
