Mitt Romney Connection To Jack Abramoff?

Ah, the usual sudden interest in spending time with one's family.

Jason Roe, the deputy campaign manager of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney's 2008 GOP presidential bid, has resigned.

The resignation came a day after the St. Petersburg Times reported that Roe, while serving as chief of staff to Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.), had sent an e-mail to the paper saying that Feeney had no way to know that now-convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff paid for a 2003 trip to Scotland with the congressman. The Justice Department is investigating the trip.
