Doolittle Refuses to Comment on Abramoff Ties:


Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) will not talk about the letters that he wrote to the Interior Department in an effort to help Indian tribes who hired Jack Abramoff as a lobbyist, according to the Sacramento Bee.  One of Doolittle’s letters complained about the closing of an Indian casino contradicting Doolittle’s career-long anti-gambling stance.  Doolittle has even claimed that the reason that he wrote letters opposing Indian casino openings that threatened Abramoff clients was because he is anti-gambling.  Doolittle’s contradictory letters follow one pattern: helping Abramoff clients who contributed $130,000 to him and his leadership PAC.
