Tigua Tribe Cheated by Lobbyists Abramoff and Scanlon

This case of exploitation of American Indian tribes is under investigation by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff and public relations executive Michael Scanlon are charged with manipulating the Tigua Indian Tribe (Ysleta del Sur) and walking away with millions of dollars. Responding to the evidence, Senator Byron L. Dorgan called the activities "a cesspool of greed, a disgusting pattern, certainly, of moral corruption, possibly of criminal corruption...a pathetic, disgusting example of greed run amok."
