This Abramoff scandal is getting really interesting:
Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff bragged two years ago that he was in contact with White House political aide Karl Rove on behalf of a large, Bermuda-based corporation that wanted to avoid incurring some taxes and continue receiving federal contracts, according to a written statement by President Bush's nominee to be deputy attorney general.They really are a dirty crowd, we all know that. But there seems to be growing evidence of very strong connections between Rove, Abramoff and Grover Norquist. Josh Marshall takes a closer look at their relationship over at TPM. One key link is Rove's assistant, Susan Ralston:
Rove's personal assistant at the time, Susan Ralston, formerly worked as Abramoff's secretary.She's the person who would allegedly screen Rove's calls through Norquist.
