Before he was famous

Jack Abramoff has become well known of late as the conduit for illicit funds to cover Tom Delay's golf-junkets and foreign influence gathering tours. But before that he was the president of the College Republican National committee. In addition to recruiting such regressive luminaries as Ralph Reed and Grover Norquist, Casino Jack was refining his techniques for voter fraud:

Before this time Jack ran the youth effort for Reagan in Massachusetts which produced 10,000 absentee ballot votes in Reagan’s 3000 vote margin of victory.
Obviously a collegiate effort, overkill on the number of votes stolen and all, but you've got to appreciate the enthusiasm. I mean do you have ANY idea how long it takes to dummy 10,000 ballots? Talk about writer's cramp.
