One of the things I found amazing about the whole thing was the Christian connection. Ralph Reed used his credentials to mount a Christian campaign against gambling in Texas to enrich the casinos in Louisiana. The campaign was even paid for by money Reed demanded from his best buddies and the Choctow Indian Casinos. And the Christians that found out about it didn't seem to mind being used at all. Very forgiving. Also means they are ripe to be picked over again.
