Christian leaders link scandal to Indian gaming

Christian leaders are blaming the Jack Abramoff scandal on the "corrupting" influence of Indian gaming.

American Values President Gary Bauer says gaming tribes corrupted the process by giving money to members of both political parties. “It is certainly true that if one is looking for bipartisanship in Washington, you won’t find it anywhere except on the question of how many members of both parties took gambling money, or gambling related money," he says in a posting by Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian group.

Pastor Chris Geeslin ran the US Family Network, a group that took funds from the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, a well-known gaming tribe. "We knew it came from an Indian tribe but we didn't know it was an Indian tribe that was involved in gambling," he says.
