Interior Secretary Gale Norton Resigns Amid Corruption Alligations

What do you do when a picture of you and Jack Abramoff shows up in the media? Why you get the fuck out of dodge of course!

Interior Secretary resigns; Ties to Abramoff Indian deals

Published: March 10, 2006

Interior Secretary Gale Norton will resign today, the Associated Press has confirmed. Norton, photographed at left with fallen conservative lobbyist Jack Abramoff, was fingered in deals with Native American tribes that Abramoff represented. The photograph at left was released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Abramoff's tribal clients donated $50,000 to a conservative environmental group founded by Norton, hoping to win face time with the Secretary. They eventually did.

Former DeLay deputy chief of staff Tony Rudy helped Abramoff arrange a meeting with Norton, and within months, the lobbyist's clients were making huge contributions to the environmental group Norton started, the Council of Republicans for Environmental Advocacy.
