Rep. Richard Pombo (R-California), chairman of the House Resources Committee, has accepted $76,500 from 31 tribes and tribal lobbyists.

The nonpartisan Political Money Line examined Federal Election Commission filings of RICHPAC, Pombo's campaign committee, which raised $300,000 as of last month. Tribes were the largest group of donors.

The Barona Band of Mission Indians of California donated $10,000, the Osage Nation of Oklahoma donated $5,000 and several lobbyists, including Jack Abramoff, gave $5,000.
