Mercury Rising: The Abramoff Diet
We knew ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff struggled with his weight. Now we know one reason why -- the poor guy never found the right diet. During one of his thin periods a few years back, he told a reporter friend of ours that he'd tried an all-sushi diet. (Is that kosher? Not the ebi .) Worked great -- the pounds fell off -- until his doctor discovered the mercury levels in his blood had rocketed off the charts and he had to give it up. A spokesman for Abramoff said he had no comment.
