Reed/Norquist links to Abramoff

Not that this is news, but at least it’s ‘official’ now.

Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed was paid more than $4 million by disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s influence peddling operation on behalf of Indian gambling interests, a Senate report released Thursday said.

The report said tax-cut advocate Grover Norquist served as a buffer between Abramoff’s casino gambling money and Reed. Norquist’s Americans for Tax Relief served as a conduit for the payments from the Choctaws to Reed’s operation, while Norquist, a close White House ally, took a cut, the panel said.
