This passage was buried in a lengthy piece in TIME magazine this weekend:
[S]ources tell TIME that Abramoff’s work habits could be making the investigators’ job much easier. He did nearly all his communication by e-mail–even with the assistants who sat right outside his office, associates say. And having farmed out so much work among his colleagues, Abramoff insisted on a daily accounting–known as the wrap-up–to make sure it had all got done. In those records…are notations of nearly every phone call and appointment, every payment that was collected and every check that was sent out.
Tom DeLay claims that he didn’t know that Abramoff was financing trips he took to London and Russia. DeLay should request that Abramoff release all his emails and other records so this issue can be resolved.
