This is from the LA Times. J. Steven Griles, whom Abramoff once called ‘our guy’ in the department, also admitted to lying about a relationship with an Abramoff employee.
By Richard B. Schmitt, Times Staff Writer.

As with the Teapot Dome scandal in the Harding Administration, the Dept. of Interior has been a major center of corruption in the Bush Administration. We have called Griles, “ethically challenged” for years now.

Story in the New York Times.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
