The Indian-Casino scandal has exposed the corruption and arrogance that runs through parts of the Washington lobbying community and the Republican party. At the centre of this drama is Jack Abramoff, the former movie producer with ties to Republican heavyweights and the Bush administration, who has cheated several Indian tribes out of millions of dollars and bought influence in Washington. With more criminal charges expected, this paperback edition includes all-new information from ex-presidential candidate John McCain, a central figure in the scandal.
Peter H. Stone, a writer for the "National Journal, "was one of the first reporters on the Abramoff story and has been following it closely since it broke in 2004. He has written for the "New York Times, "the "Washington Post, The Atlantic Monthly," and the "Boston Globe." This is his first book.
