24. I completely agree.
It doesn't prove guilt. It doesn't mean that any or all Democrats are involved.

It does, however, mean that a free gift was made (that was later reimbursed) and it is a connection between that lawmaker and Abramoff. That's not proof of guilt, but it's worthy of investigation (IMO).

The actual Senator involved in the situation in the hypothetical is a Democrat. All I changed was the name of the Senator (aside from the name, that's a real USA Today article). That's precisely why I take issue with the "Abramoff gave NO money to Dems" statement. There may have been absolutely no wrongdoing, but Abramoff HAS given "money" (in the form of a service) to at least one Democrat.
