Infamous former lobbyist Jack Abramoff told MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday night that the political system of the United States needed to be changed because it lured people into corruption. He served three and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to corrupting public officials and tax evasion in January 2006. Abramoff claimed he was now “trying to clean up the system.”
