ino Jack, the dramatized version of the Jack Abramoff saga, and MSNBC host of “Hardball” Chris Matthews fielded audience questions following the D.C. premiere of the soon-to-be-released film.

What is to be learned from reenactment of the scandal?  According to Matthews, the party in power is most likely to produce the next Abramoff.  The Examiner quotes Spacey as saying "No" when asked whether one political party was more prone to corruption and scandal.

The Creative Coalition, the social political advocacy organization of the entertainment industry, and Landmark Technology’s President and CEO Lani Hay hosted the world premiere at E Street Cinemas. 

Guests included Vicki Kennedy, Ben, Sally and Quinn Bradlee, Andrea Mitchell, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Heather Podesta.
