Connections - Tyco, Abramoff, & Rove

What do Karl Rove, Jack Abramoff, and Tyco have in common? 

The Washington Post reports here that Abramoff  "bragged" about being in touch with Rove about a company that now turns out to be Tyco. To make matters worse, "Timothy E. Flanigan, general counsel for conglomerate Tyco International Ltd., said in a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Abramoff's lobbying firm initially boasted that Abramoff could help Tyco fend off a special liability tax because he 'had good relationships with members of Congress,' including House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.)."   

With Kozlowski convicted and Abramoff awaiting trial, all in unrelated matters, will this new revelation play a factor in where some investigations might lead.
