LXer: DeLay tried, failed to aid Abramoff client

Published at LXer:

WASHINGTON -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay tried to pressure the Bush administration into shutting down an Indian-owned casino that lobbyist Jack Abramoff wanted closed - shortly after a tribal client of Abramoff's donated to a DeLay political action committee, The Associated Press has learned. [Ed: But he didn't know Jack Abramoff, Ralph Reed or anyone else. Why he didn't even know that Bill Gates' and Michael Dell's Foundation gave his Foundation $350,000 -tadelste] Abramoff pleaded guilty to federal charges and is cooperating with investigators whose bribery probe is now focusing on several members of Congress and their aides, including a former DeLay aide. Abramoff's former business partner Michael Scanlon, DeLay's former press aide, also has pleaded guilty in the case.
