'Casino Jack': Secret Panel Discusses Money, Power and Politics at Belcourt Tonight



Tell me this tweet doesn't pique your curiosity:

1 elected state lawmaker, 1 lobbyist, 1 DC staffer, moderated by Bruce Barry. Panelists' identification withheld for now.

Yes, tonight at The Belcourt, Metro Council Member-at-Large Megan Barry and Pith contributor Bruce Barry are hosting a special screening of Alex Gibney's documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money. Gibney has taken up the Michael Moore/Robert Greenwald mantle of documentary muckraking in films such as Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and Taxi to the Dark Side. This one's an account of the sleazy acquaintances and sleazier practices that landed uber-lobbyist Jack Abramoff in the pokey.

Want to find out who's on the panel — and to see what's so juicy about it that the participants' names had to be withheld? Show up for the 7 p.m. show. The panel discussion's afterward. And anyone who goes, please report back.
