another abramoff one

A former aide to Republican Senator Thad Cochran has been charged of taking more than $25,000 in free stuff from Jack Abramoff, in exchange for helping Abramoff's clients.

Ann Copland, who spent 29 years working for Cochran, wasn't shy in making requests. For example, in 2002 she "requested tickets to Paul McCartney and Green Day concerts and Washington Capitals games. She also asked for the circus, but wrote, 'I'm only interested in the floor for that event.'"

Takes some nerve. And also, it's stupid to commit such demands for bribes to writing...
