There are few political operatives active today that are as ruthless and cynical as Ralph Reed.
Reed is, after all, the man who infamously declared that he specializes in “guerrilla warfare,” and bragged “I paint my face and travel at night. You don’t know it’s over until you’re in a body bag.”
Reed also knowingly took hundreds of thousands of dollars from corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff to manipulate and mobilize his Religious Right allies to fight gambling expansions in order to protect Abramoff’s client’s gambling interests. Reed even had some of the money laundered through third-parties in order to try and conceal its origins, yet continues to insist to this day that he is “proud” of the “outstanding” work he did on behalf of Abramoff and his clients.
