GOP Senator Predicts 7 Lawmakers will go from "The People's House" to the "Big House"

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) predicts six US Representatives and one US Senator will go to jail over the Jack Abramoff scandal.

Sen Coburn wouldn't name names, but told a town hall meeting in Wagoner, Oklahoma they could figure it out for themselves by keeping up with news reports.

He says "earmarks" -- or pork barrel spending -- is at the heart of the scandal and will be the factor that ends up convicting lawmakers. (TRS)
