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.
