(Newser) – It's a far cry from his old perk-filled life, but it sure beats prison: Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff is in a halfway house and helping a Baltimore pizzeria with marketing and strategy, reports the Baltimore Jewish Times. Abramoff served 43 months in prison for his shady lobbying practices in DC, and his work with the owner of Tov Pizza is part of his transition back to civilian life. The gig will probably last 6 months.

“We’re all Jews, we’re all on the same team,” the owner tells the newspaper. “I’m more than happy to help a fellow Jew in any way I can.”
