This doesn’t sounds like the Republican Party’s rebuilding is on the right path.
Former congressman Bob Ney said he lobbied incoming RNC Chairman Mel Martinez when he was the federal secretary for HUD.
According to Josh Marshall’s sister site, TPM Muckraker:
“Just two months after he left HUD in order to make a run for the Senate in early 2004, his campaign netted $250,000 from a fundraiser co-chaired by Abramoff.”
