I Find The Reid/Abramoff Thing Discouraging.
Advertisements [?]
Maybe it's all on the up and up, but it doesn't look good. None of the four tribes involved gave to Reid prior to Abramoff representing them. That's the Coushatta, Agua Caliente, Mississippi Choctaw and Saginaw. I fail to see how these tribes interests have anything to do with any interests that Reid represents. I may well just be ignorant, but it makes me uncomfortable.
