I never did understand this Abramoff scandal from the media accounts

Which of course, Abramoff did, primarily with lucrative contracts involving Indian casinos, after which Reed and Abramoff left voluminous records. These actions of a corrupt lobbyist and a so-called pious former head of the Christian Coalition, tied up in a gambling scandal — that’s not the kind of people that John McCain ought to turn to, to raise money for his campaign efforts.

(however, I suspect if the Justice department thought these folks should have been prosecuted they would have been? Did Waxman take it up with them? Apparently Abramoff was prosecuted because he was over charging a Miss Tribe?? Perhaps we should look to the salaries of Congress and ask, are they over charging us for what they do?)
