Firm offers $9M refund to Saginaw Chippewa Tribe
Monday, March 7, 2005

The law firm that employed disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has offered to refund the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan $9 million, The Morning Sun reports.

Tribal sources told the paper that the Greenberg Traurig firm made the offer after firing Abramoff. The tribe reportedly paid Abramoff a total of $14 million for lobbying services.

According to a Senate Indian Affairs Committee investigation, Abramoff boasted that he helped secure federal funding for the tribe. This included $3 million for a new school, 1.2 million for improvements to tribal streets and roads, $750,000 for the tribe's residential drug treatment center, $300,000 for the tribal police department, $300,000 for wind power study and $200,000 for water main extensions.
