The [Justice Department IG] report also contained evidence of Abramoff’s strong ties to the Bush White House. One White House political official, Leonard Rodriguez, told Fine’s investigators he kept Abramoff aware of information relevant to Guam “at the behest of Ken Mehlman, the White House Political Director,” the report said. There was no explanation of why Mehlman would have wanted the information shared with Abramoff.
