Abramoff Associate And Former DeLay Staffer Ready To Flip Against Both?

by Steve

Michael Scanlon, Jack Abramoff's partner and a former staffer to Tom DeLay, has been charged today with one count of conspiracy in what observers see as the first step to him flipping next week as part of a plea bargain against Abramoff. Aside from Abramoff, the indictment indicates that the next person to take a bullet from the expected plea bargain by Scanlon and his cooperation is Ohio GOP Congressman Bob Ney, and you don't need a map to see who would be next.
