Congressman Cannon Says Sibling Lobbyist is OK

Washington, DC – Utah Republican Congressman Chris Cannon has an indirect connection to Jack Abramoff - his former chief of staff David Safavian worked with the disgraced lobbyist. Safavian was later charged with obstructing justice. But what's currently raising eyebrows are Cannon's ties to another lobbyist - his brother Joe Cannon. The Congressman defended the relationship, in a Capitol Hill interview with Benjamin Shaw.
