Well, via Raw Story we find out how the whole Abramoff scandal really got rolling. Michael Scanlon apparently dumped his girlfriend, whom he confided all his dirty dealings, for a manicurist. The girlfriend, Emily Miller, then promptly went to the FBI to inform them of Scanlon's and Abramoff's illicit activities.
Kind of reminds me of a story an old friend of mine who happened to also be a bookie told a long time ago. I asked him how he decided whether or not to accept bets from someone. He told me rule number one was no married men. He went on to tell me that a married man will do anything to pay you, but when the wives found out about it, they'd cut your throat. It was straight to the cops.
An interesting side note to this story is that Miller is the same Emily Miller that interrupted Collin Powell's interview with Tim Russert from Jordan on Meet The Press. Girl gets around.
