And just quickly while we're updating all the Republican/Bush admin scandals......

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 - The former head of procurement policy for the White House budget office was indicted Wednesday on charges of obstructing investigators and lying about his ties to Jack Abramoff, the Washington lobbyist who is at the center of a federal investigation that has brought Representative Tom DeLay under scrutiny.

The indictment of the former official, David H. Safavian, was the first to result from the Justice Department's larger investigation of Mr. Abramoff, a major Republican fund-raiser who was once among the most powerful lobbyists in Washington.
