...and his involvment with Arbramoff come to light.

I tried to search and see if this has been covered, but didn't see anything.

The outrage over the Christain Fundamentalists, specifically Ralph Reed and the Christain Coalition before the 2004 election was well-covered by the mainstream media.
Since then, I've heard nary a word.

Now, former Christain Coalition leader Raplh Reed is attempting to go mainstream and is attempting to hold office in Georgia.
He's not doing well in the polls

and is suffering from the Abramoff scandal

For Reed, this run for lieutenant governor is part of an assault on greatness: lieutenant governor in 2006, governor in 2010, and president after that. But Reed is an example of what Jack Abramoff will mean to the GOP next year. Reed was an integral part of the Abramoff gambling swindle in Texas in 2002, in which the former super lobbyist worked both sides of the gambling debate, working for one client to get a casino shut down, with Reed's help, then signing up the vanquished Indian tribe for more than $4 million to get the casino reopened, which he tried to do with the help of the now embattled Rep. Bob Ney of Ohio.

This seems to be a situation worthy of ATS/PTS discussion. This ties in with the Abramoff scandal.

Thoughts?

It thoroughly ties into the Abramoff scandal.

He and Reid have been thick as thieves since they ran the College Republican fiefdom. If this thing doesn't drag Reid down, I'll be surprised. I can't think of anyone more worthy of jailtime, if not outright disgrace and disdain, either. Reid is a total hypocrit.
