Lapin, Gibson, Abramoff

So it turns out that Rabbi Daniel Lapin - one of many GOP Jewish activists who defended Mel Gibson from charges of anit-Semitism - was partly funded by Mel Gibson and, according to TPM, had close ties to Jack Abramoff. Lapin, in fact, allegedly introduced Tom DeLay to Jack Abramoff. It's a perfect Rove GOP trifecta: religious fundamentalism, bigotry disguised as art, and corruption.
