Casino Jack

What a great movie!! Some of Abramoff and Delay’s buds from the Alexander Strategy Group, actually a partner and former press secretary for former US Rep Rick Santorum, contacted our environmental activism group in a dark alley. Not kidding-- he approached me in a dark alley outside a tiny rural firehouse and offered to “help” us. He said some of his clients were supportive of our efforts to stop a corn ethanol plant from being built.  They continued to contact members of our group via a “Media and Issue Advocacy” firm working for ASG. Whenever I asked who their clients were the names changed. Sometimes it was the “Small Business Survival Committee”, or the “Association of Consumers and Taxpayers” or “Americans For Tax Reform.”   The whole thing seemed kind of shady and we never accepted their offers of assistance.
