Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a complaint with the IRS, charging that Grover Norquist’s two tax-exempt groups, Americans for Tax Reform (a 501 (c)(4) lobbying group and the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation (a 501 (c)(3) “research and policy analysis organization,” i.e., a pseudo-think-tank) were used to launder money Jack Abramoff pried out of various Indian tribes and gave to Ralph Reed, with Grover’s folks taking a cut along the way. The point was to give Reed deniability on his acceptance of money from gambling interests to oppose licenses for potential competitors.
George Bush already never knew Jack Abramoff. Do you suppose he’s about to not have known Norquist, either?
