center of a Republican Party Lobbying scandal

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Abramoff_Indian_lobbying_scandal - work performed by political lobbyists Jack Abramoff, Ralph Reed, Jr., Grover Norquist and Michael Scanlon on behalf of Indian casino gambling interests for an estimated $85 million in fees.... In the course of the scheme, the lobbyists are accused of illegally giving gifts and making campaign donations to legislators in return for votes or support of legislation. Representative Bob Ney (R-OH) and two aides to Tom De Lay (R-TX) have been directly implicated; other politicians, mostly Republican lawmakers, with connections to Indian affairs have various ties.
