"How Abramoff Cooked the Books"

Meet Shawn Vasell:

Shawn Vasell, another member of Abramoff’s lobbying team, served as client manager on the Mississippi Choctaw account, and shuttled between jobs in [Sen. Conrad Burns (R-MT)]’s Montana office and Abramoff’s shop. Vasell was registered as a lobbyist for the Choctaw and Coushatta tribes in 2001, joined Burns’s staff in 2002, then rejoined Abramoff’s team as a lobbyist for the tribes in 2003.

So what was Vasell doing during his time with Abramoff’s shop? Apparently cooking the books
