Abramoff's Whores


In the fraud case against Jack Abramoff the Washington lobbyist who used to work for Senator Tom Delay has ties to Alabama politics. Senator Richard Shelby accepted contributions from Abramoff and Governor Bill Riley also accepted contributions from Tom Delay’s ARMPAC which has been discovered to have ties to Abramoff. You have to wonder just how far into Alabama politics this money has reached. Accepting or being tied to money from an investigation of this manner suggests some wrong doing by accident or by purpose. The well-known strong-arm tactics of Senator Tom Delay begs the question, if Shelby and Riley both accepted funds were there something that was expected in return?
