It's been widely reported that two of Abramoff's tribal clients made contributions to the New Hampshire Republican State Committee shortly before Election Day. The contributions had been reported to total $10,000 - but the tribes actually gave at least $15,000, according to records obtained by TPMmuckraker.com.
And now there are new details that show that two of Abramoff's business associates, Michael Scanlon and Ralph Reed, had both hired GOP Marketplace, the consulting firm hired to do the jamming, to do election work during the same year. According to a source close to the case, GOP Marketplace's work for Scanlon had related to the Lousiana Coushatta's election for tribal chairman. The Coushatta were an Abramoff client.
