Seems like business as usual at a kosher pizzeria in Baltimore despite the presence of a new employee: disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
Abramoff started working Monday at Tov Pizza. Owner Ron Rosenbluth says the former lobbyist will be helping out with the restaurant's marketing.
Abramoff could not be spotted behind the counter Wednesday afternoon. Rosenbluth said Abramoff was there but declined to make him available for an interview.
Several customers told The Associated Press they were surprised but untroubled to learn that Abramoff was working there.
Abramoff was released from a minimum-security prison camp in western Maryland on June 8 after serving about 3 1/2 years for fraud, corruption and conspiracy.
