BALTIMORE (AP) Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has found a new job, at a kosher pizzeria in Baltimore.

The owner of Tov Pizza, Ron Rosenbluth, says Abramoff began working there Monday. He says Abramoff is learning about the business right now and will eventually be helping with its marketing.

Abramoff was released from a minimum-security federal prison in western Maryland on June 8 after serving about 3 1/2 years for fraud, corruption and conspiracy. He reported to a halfway house in Baltimore and remains under the supervision of the Bureau of Prisons until his Dec. 4 release date.

Abramoff previously owned a kosher restaurant in Washington. His employment with Tov Pizza was first reported by the Baltimore Jewish Times.
