Will Garrett Return Abramoff Money Now?

Back in 2006, people called on Representative Scott Garrett to return the $1,000 in donations his campaign recieved that were connected to Jack Abramoff. No dice to date, but with Abramoff getting another 4 years, this time directly tied to his Federal lobbying activities, maybe now will be the time.

Abramoff represents all that is wrong with politics today. Four years was way too light a sentence for what he did. The fact that Ralph Reed and Grover Norquist aren't going to jail with him is a travesty of justice. All those who see Garrett as a stand up, independent guy should demand more of their guy than to keep Abramoff's scum money. Granted, at this point that money is long spent, the symbolism of the act wouldn't be lost.
