A handful of Ohio politicians have given away campaign contributions from indicted Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff. And, one Ohio congressman has been repeatedly linked with Abramoff.
Whether the scandal will have a lasting effect on Ohio Politics depends on who you talk to. Top Democrat in the Ohio House of Representatives and Democratic Party head, Chris Redfern,thinks that Ohio Republicans such as Bob Ney, Deborah Pryce, Pat Tiberi, Mike DeWine,and George Voinovich were right to jettison the Abramoff cash. But, he says giving it to charity is misguided.
