Abstract:

"Before he took up lobbying, Jack Abramoff was an aspiring moviemaker who cowrote and produced Red Scorpion, a Cold War potboiler starring hulking Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren. It drew decidedly mixed reviews. Century Strategies, Ralph Reed's Georgia-based consulting firm, was paid close to 6 million dollars by two of Abramoff's casino-rich tribal clients. A little more than a third of the money was funneled through a "think tank" that Scanlon set up in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, a seaside getaway three hours from Washington. It was run with the help of a lifeguard and a yoga instructor. Six casino-rich Indian tribes paid an astonishing total of 82 million dollars to superlobbyish Jack Abramoff and public relations whiz Michael Scanlon. Abramoff and Scanlon devised a secret a kickback scheme-dubbed "Gimme five"--To split and pocket more than 40 million dollars of these tribal payments."--source other than the Library of Congress.
