Conn. tribe shells out top dollar for lobbyist
Monday, September 22, 2003

The newly recognized Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut pays top dollar for Ron Kaufman, a lobbyist with close ties to the Republican White House.

Kaufman was paid $500,000 to lobby the Bush administration. Former assistant secretary Neal McCaleb, a Bush appointee, recognized the tribe in a final decision last June. Kaufman is the brother-in-law of White House chief of staff Andrew Card.
