Norton's Abramoff Ties

Interior Secretary Gale Norton -- pictured in the center here -- with lobbyist Jack Abramoff at the far right -- has resigned.

Nothing to do with Abramoff.

But the Raw Story reports she was named in deals Mr Abramoff cooked up with Indian tribes that the former lobbyist represented.

His clients donated $50,000 to a conservative environmental group Ms Norton founded -- in the months after Rep Tom DeLay (R-TX) helped Mr Abramoff arrange a meeting with Secretary Norton. (TRS)
