Jack Abramoff, the lobbyist who served a jail term for defrauding Native American tribes, is now a radio talk-show host.

Abramoff’s show airs Sunday evenings on XM Satellite Radio.

Abramoff, who pled guilty in 2006 to felony counts involving fraud, corruption and conspiracy, served three and a half years at a minimum security prison camp in Cumberland, Md. Following his release, he worked at a Baltimore kosher pizza eatery and lived in a nearby halfway house.

His book, “Capitol Punishment,” which focuses on the culture of corruption in Washington, was published last year. In 2010, Abramoff’s story was the subject of the movie “Casino Jack,” which starred Kevin Spacey.

Prior to his downfall, Abramoff ran two kosher eateries in Washington and established a Jewish school.

“I support myself by public speaking and trying to work on as many appropriate and legitimate ventures as I can,” he told The Washington Post.

“Every dollar I make and virtually every dollar I spend is supervised, and they take a hefty chunk,” said Abramoff, who owes millions in restitution.
