Dear Boston Globe

This statement from today's article Bush, DeLay give back Abramoff funds is misleading:

Known as a top Washington lobbyist, Abramoff had vast influence and gave generously to Democrats and Republicans alike...
Jack Abramoff did not personally give any money to Democrats. If you check the campaign finance records, you'll find that Abramoff gave over $172,000 to Republicans and nearly $89,000 to interest groups over the past 12 or so years. Not a dime of Abramoff's own money went to Democrats. Abramoff's clients may have given money to both Democrats and Republicans, but there is no question that he himself was a supporter of the GOP.
