Jack Abramoff’s Post-Prison Gig
It involves tomato sauce
Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty to federal charges stemming from alleged corruption in 2006, has a new job out of his halfway house: Helping out at Tov Pizza, Baltimore’s premier kosher pizzeria! While some insist that Mama Leah Gourmet Kosher Pizza, in nearby Pikesville, Maryland, is superior, Tov has been serving quality kosher pizza in Baltimore proper for more than a quarter of a century (with a brief pause after a fire two years ago).
“We’re all Jews, we’re all on the same team,” says Tov owner Ron Rosenbluth. “I’m more than happy to help a fellow Jew in any way I can.”
Abramoff, who used to own and operate a kosher restaurant in Washington, D.C., is helping out with “all aspects” of Tov’s business, particularly marketing strategies. For starters: He is educating the business as to the principle that there is no such thing as bad P.R.
