Mehlman tied to Abramoff – Who isn’t lately!

The LA Times has an article, today, linking Ken Mehlman to Abramoff. Here’s an excerpt:

Newly disclosed e-mails suggest that the ax fell after intervention by one of the highest officials at the White House: Ken Mehlman, on behalf of one of the most influential lobbyists in town, Jack Abramoff.

The e-mails show that Abramoff, whose client list included the Northern Mariana Islands, had long opposed Stayman’s work advocating labor changes in that U.S. commonwealth, and considered what his lobbying team called the “Stayman project” a high priority.

“Mehlman said he would get him fired,” an Abramoff associate wrote after meeting with Mehlman, who was then White House political director.

The Abramoff hit list seems to be long and his emails are damaging to many repubs. Now if we could just get Norquist!!
