DeLay Advocated for Sweatshop Owners & Forced Abortions
Here's a piece of the Abramoff puzzle I have yet to hear in the many discussions taking place. This is from today's Democracy Now:
We turn now to Abramoff's special relationship with the South Pacific island of Saipan and how it connects to his ties to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. Saipan is an American territory in the South Pacific also known as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. In the mid-1990s Abramoff was on the payroll of Saipan officials aiming to stop legislation that would crack down on sweat shop conditions, which run rampant on the island. In 1997, Abramoff arranged a lavish trip to the island of Saipan for Delay.
