Former Abramoff assistant resigns as Karl Rove's aide

Susan Ralston has resigned as Karl Rove's personal aide due to an ethics investigation which showed that she accepted thousands of dollars worth of gifts from convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff in violation of White House policy. Ralston has worked for Rove since 2001, and "Abramoff reportedly bragged to others that [she] was his 'implant' at the White House."

How can anyone avoid coming to the conclusion that the George W. Bush administration and the Republican leadership is riddled with corruption?
