A Wall Street Journal article, Federal Influence-Peddling Inquiry Casts Wider Net, indicates that another Republican, U.S. Senator Conrad Burns of Montana, is a subject of the Jack Abramoff probe looking at misdeeds related to a lobbying firm that bilked millions from Indian tribes across the nation including our local, Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe.  Under former Chief Maynard Kahgegab, the tribe sought a federal grant to help build a new school.
