Jack Abramoff has left prison

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirms for me that former lobbyist and fundraiser Jack Abramoff, federal prisoner 27593-112, is officially “In Transit.”

That means that he has been moved from the Federal Correctional Institution at Cumberland (Md.), and as I write this, he is in an Federal Bureau of Prisons car, van, or bus. According to the National Journal, he’s headed to a halfway house in Baltimore to serve out the remainder of his sentence, which ends December 4.
