WASHINGTON — Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who made his fair share of doe working politicians on the Hill, is finished working at a kosher Baltimore pizza joint now that he’s finished his sentence and is on supervised release, the Associated Press reported.

AP reported that Abramoff, who was convicted on corruption, fraud and conspiracy charges, was released from fed prison on June 8, and then went on home confinement, which just ended on Dec. 3, according to the Bureau of Prisons records.

While on home confinement, he worked for Tov Pizza on marketing and customer outreach. The Hebrew word “tov” means good in English.

Tov Pizza owner Ron Rosenbluth told AP that Abramoff might occasionally stop by.

Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who is finishing off his prison term in a halfway house in Maryland, has got a new gig: It’s with a kosher pizza joint in Baltimore.

The Baltimore Jewish Times reports that he is working at Tov Pizza with owner Ron Rosenbluth “in almost all areas of the restaurant business, with perhaps a focus on marketing strategies.”

Abramoff ran some restaurants in D.C. including a kosher deli called Stacks, that was ironically or not, in very close proximity to FBI headquarters on Pennyslvania Avenue NW. He went off to prison in 2006 for fraud, conspiracy and corruption charges.

The paper said Abramoff will work at Tov Pizza for at least six months. His release date is Dec. 4.
