In the Words of Abramoff

Former Lobbyist Jack Abramoff has likely been talking - - in keeping with his plea deal - - as now we know for certain that prosecutors intend to use some of his emails in their case against David Safavian, former GSA chief of staff.  Safavian is charged with obstruction of justice (see here).  According to Yahoo (AP) here,  three congressional representatives (all Republicans) are now being seen with a tie to Abramoff. The question here will be whether their names are nothing more than someone mentioned by Abramoff  in an email, (part of the collateral consequences), or are their names an indication that they are had ties to Abramoff, and if so what kind of ties?
