Abramoff update

Another one caught in Abramoff's huge (and quickly sinking) net:

Political Wire:

"New evidence is emerging" that Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND), "the top Democrat on the Senate committee currently investigating Jack Abramoff, got political money arranged by the lobbyist back in 2002 shortly after the lawmaker took action favorable to Abramoff's tribal clients," the AP reports."
The revelation came as Dorgan took to the offensive Monday, saying there was no connection between the $20,000 in donations he got from Abramoff's firm and tribal clients in spring 2002 and a February 2002 letter he wrote urging the Senate Appropriations Committee to fund the tribal school building program."
