Apparently 40 of 45 senate democrats have received monies from taken money from Abramoff, his associates, and Indian tribe clients according to the NRSC's website. The media has you believe it is just the dirty Republicans making money. Believe me, they all are.
Received At Least $98,550
Received At Least $79,300*
"Dingy" Harry Reid
Received At Least $68,941*
Received At Least $45,750*
Received At Least $29,550
For the complete list of contributions, Democrats Abramoff connections
Whats the issue? Apparently Indian tribes can give upwards near $500k in campaign donations. They do not fall under the restrictions that other organizations do, which allow for $25K. This is where I have an issue with the "Maverick" John McCain. McCain was the second largest recipient of Indian Tribe money, yet his Campaign Finance Reform bill does nothing to curtail those kind of large donations. I guess its easy to ban activities that you do not benefit yourself.
