link<br><br><br><br>Is this the connection: Abramoff and Norton...<br><br>AP story from 11/05:<br><br>"“Do you think you could call that friend and set up a meeting?” then-DeLay staffer Tony Rudy asked fellow House aide Thomas Pyle in a Dec. 29, 2000, e-mail obtained by the Associated Press titled “Gale Norton-Interior Secretary.” President Bush had nominated Norton to his cabinet the day before.<br><br>"Rudy wrote Abramoff that same day promising he had “good news” about securing a meeting with Norton, forwarding information about the environmental group Norton had founded, according to e-mails obtained by investigators and reviewed by The Associated Press. Rudy’s message to Abramoff was sent from Congress’ official e-mail system.<br><br>"Within months, Abramoff clients donated heavily to the Norton-founded group and to DeLay’s personal charity. The Coushatta Indian tribe, for instance, wrote checks in March 2001 for $50,000 to the Norton group and $10,000 to the DeLay Foundation, tribal records show.<br><br>"The lobbyist and the Coushattas eventually won face-to-face time with the secretary during a Sept. 24, 2001, dinner sponsored by the group she had founded.<br><br>"Abramoff’s clients were trying to stop a rival Indian tribe from winning Interior Department approval to build a casino.""<br><br>

I think the corruption runs deep.. we just haven't discovered the others yet.<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
Is it just some weird coincidence that White House stories more and more are announced after 6PM on Friday? They wouldn't want to be trying to miss the news cycle now would they? Do they think the entire Bush constituency cannot remember shiit all the way to Monday morning?<br><br>Oh wait, maybe they do. They forget about everything else after a few days.<br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)(__*__)
