The Confusion

The Washington Post has a comprehensive article on the Jack Abramoff scandal and Ralph Reed’s involvement therein. The implication seems to be that Reed took gambling proceeds funneled through a separate conduit before getting to Reed and used that money to attack Republican members of Congress as being soft on gambling. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why the average voter who is not paying attention really could care less about this story.

Trying to explain to Joe Six Pack that someone took gambling profits and ran ads against someone for being soft on gambling boggles the mind. But, if true, it is not favorable to Ralph Reed.

Relatedly, Reed denies it.

    I’ll tell you exactly how the Average Joe WILL become interested in this whole matter, Erick.

    What Ralph and Jack and Grover and a whole bunch of other sub-entities have really been doing is acting exactly like the MOB does. Using 3rd parties to launder religiously tainted money through to get money to Ralph and his fellow-scheming “religious people” is parallel to the racketeering of the Mob.

    It’s not illegal money, mind you, but it is “immoral money,” and that is a story I will tell to get “Average Joe” up to speed on who Ralphie Poo really is.

    I wonder what Congressman Aderholt has to say about finding out Ralph Reed was behind attacking him because he was soft on internet g*mbling?
