Update to my NEW LIE OF THE WEEK post on the Abramoff scandal.

From Don Surber, "Howard Dean, M.D., is trying to deny this, but Capital Eye showed Abramoff and his clients gave $1,541,673 to Democrats from 2000-2006 and $2,909,588 to Republicans. This broke down to $204,253 from Abramoff (all to Republicans) and $4,215,508 from Indian casinos and $34,500 from the San Cruz casino."

By the way, Don Surber has taken a position, with which I agree, and has a good post about what a failure campaign finance reform has been and what a mistake it will be if we continue down a similar path with trying to legislate and restrict lobbyists through reform.

We should make it easier and more transparent. Go read his post on How Congress Will Exploit The Abramoff Scandal.
