Renaming a Corruption Haven

Signatures restaurant, the Washington, D.C., fine-dining establishment formerly owned and operated by admitted-felon Jack Abramoff, is currently seeking suggestions on its Web site for a new name. That’s not surprising, given the fact that Signatures is now inextricably linked to Abramoff, whose reputation has tainted everything the former lobbyist touched. According to the Signatures Web site, the Wall Street Journal once accorded the restaurant as being “DC's Meeting Spot for Movers and Shakers.”

We here at Clean Up Washington would like to offer a few ideas of our own. Below are some staff suggestions:

“The Trough” Belly up where Ney & company did

“Quid Pro Quo”

“Tommy's” Where fundraising is made easy

Have any of your own?
