Executive summary: Casino Jack

"It is not our job to seek peaceful coexistence with the Left. Our job is to remove them from power permanently."

Before becoming one of Washington's most influential lobbyists, Jack Abramoff had been national chairman of the College Republicans. Which is where he hired Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed to help him run things over there.

On 25 May 2000, Republican House leader Tom DeLay took off on a weeklong vacation to Britain with his family. The trip was being funded by the nonprofit National Center for Public Policy Research. It just so happens that on that very same day two of Jack Abramoff's clients, eLottery Inc. and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, had coughed up $50,000 in contributions to the National Center for Public Policy Research. Two months later, DeLay killed some pending legislation that eLottery and the Choctaws had opposed.

On another trip, this time to the Marianas islands, DeLay reportedly told local officials there:

"When one of my closest and dearest friends, Jack Abramoff, your most able representative in Washington, D.C., invited me to the islands, I wanted to see firsthand the free-market success and the progress and reform you have made."
