Not Guilty Plea for Former Armey Aide

Reuters reports that former Armey aide Horace Cooper pleaded not guilty today to charges connected to the Abramoff matter.

Cooper was indicted last month on five counts of conspiracy, making false statements, concealment and obstruction of justice from his time working with Armey as well as later at the Voice of America and the Labor Department.

In one titillating detail in the indictment, Cooper complained to Abramoff that he was charged $141 at the lobbyist’s restaurant Signatures, saying “I think there may have been a little glitch at the restaurant.”
