Italia Federici, head of a conservative-leaning advocacy group, is expected to plead guilty to two felony charges as part of the ongoing federal investigation into the activities of former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, according to a document filed in federal court Wednesday. Federici is charged with obstructing Senate proceedings for obscuring the extent of her relationship with Abramoff and J. Steven Griles, former deputy secretary of the Interior Department. Griles pleaded guilty to the same charge in March.
