    The Indian Lobbying Scandal
    The Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal is a political
    scandal relating to the work performed by political
    lobbyists Jack Abramoff, Ralph E. Reed, Jr., Grover
    Norquist and Michael Scanlon on behalf of Indian casino
    gambling interests for an estimated $85 million in fees.
    Abramoff and Scanlon grossly overbilled their clients,
    secretly splitting the multimillion-dollar profits. In one case,
    they secretly orchestrated lobbying against their own
    clients in order to force them to pay for lobbying services.

    In the course of the scheme, the lobbyists are accused of
    illegally giving gifts and making campaign donations to
    legislators in return for votes or support of legislation.
