Greenberg Traurig Lobbyist-Rainmaker Resigns


— March 3, 2004

The Greenberg Traurig law firm has forced out its biggest Washington rainmaker amid controversy over tens of millions of dollars in fees charged to four Indian tribes over the past several years.

Jack Abramoff, a Republican lobbyist and fund-raiser with close ties to powerful House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, resigned on Tuesday at the request of the firm. He was the head of Greenberg’s Washington lobbying office.

Wow! This guy stinks to high heaven, according to this from the Miami Daily Business Review via Law.com.
