Abramoff Israeli Charity

From the WaPo:

Fredericksburg, Va.: Hi Susan, great stories so far. How is it the Abramoff could be broke? He had zillions of dollars, it seemed. What gives?

Susan Schmidt: I keep wondering the same thing. We do know he spent millions of dollars on his two restaurants, that he bankrolled a religious academy that educated his children, that he was sending money to settlers on the West Bank for a sniper school. He also lived extravagantly, flying by private jet and buying expensive cars. But that's an awful lot of money to go through. And there is hardly anything left for the lawyers!

There was an article in the WP..sorry I didn't save the link..but it mentioned that Abramhoff had skimmed off about 20 million from the fees flowing in and was rather vague and didn't say where the money was or if it had all been spent...but the implication was that he skimmed it off for his own piggybank.
