COM: The stench worsens

Sad story from The Texas Observer via Andrew Dobbs at Burnt Orange Report. Read the whole story here.

One of the big questions I've had during all the DeLay scandals was how
long it would take to finally reach George W. Bush.


Wait no longer.

The Texas Observer is reporting that criminal lobbyist, DeLay crony and
Bush "Pioneer" Jack Abramoff strong armed the Coushatta Indian Tribe (the same tribe he bilked for $82 million) into donating $25,000 to Grover Norquist's
Americans for Tax Reform in return for a private meeting with Bush. Abramoff
also got the tribe to donate $1 million at the same time to a nonprofit started
by the lobbyist. Essentially, Grover Norquist used his corrupt friend Abramoff
to turn the White House into a pay-for-play amusement park. Whether Bush knew about the situation or not is still up in the air, but there seems to be no
denying that he was the bait for an elaborate scheme to fish for campaign
cash.
