From Roger Shuler:

Wanted to let you know about a pretty revealing lawsuit I’ve unearthed involving GOP leaders and the Christian Coalition in Alabama. The suit was filed, and quickly closed, in 2007. It contains a lot of information about the intersection between the Republican Party, organized religious organizations, gambling, and criminal enterprises. Some of the prominent names in the lawsuit are Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed, Bob Riley, John Giles, and more. Much of the material has been published in various sources, but the complaint does a pretty good job of putting political and religious conservatives–and their questionable ethics–in perspective.

Here is a link to my first post about the lawsuit. I will follow up with a number of other pieces and will post the complaint in its entirety.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
