Abramoff Case Development

James Hirni pleaded guilty today to conspiring to commit honest services fraud, according to this report and this DOJ press release.

The plea came just three weeks after Hirni was fired by Wal-Mart Stores Inc., where he worked as a director of Republican outreach. The charge stems from his last few weeks at Sonnenschein, Nath & Rosenthal and is unrelated to Hirni’s work for the chain.
