The Jack Abramoff scandal -- initally surrounding House Speaker Tom DeLay (R-TX) -- threatens to spread to both sides of the aisle and take in a lot of party leaders on both sides.
Mr Abramoff collected $82 million from 6 Indian tribes. The money was supposed to be for lobbying and PR fees to promote casino gambling. The money went to persuade people in Congress. Much of it appears to have been spent inappropriately.
Rep DeLay is in trouble for taking trips that Mr Abramoff supposedly paid for. But Mr Abramoff and his staff also sent plenty of money to Democrats and other Republicans.
The Washington Post follows the money. (WashPost via MSNBC)
