Abramoff-linked lobbyist resigns.

Lobbyist Kevin Ring, a former aide to Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA), has resigned from his law firm. As Politico reports, Ring “often served as an intermediary between Abramoff’s clients and Doolittle’s office, according to news reports, and has remained close to Doolittle and his wife, Julie, who did consulting work for Abramoff. … Ring’s resignation could foreshadow deepening problems for Doolittle in the Abramoff inquiry.” TPM Muckraker has more.
