This smear campaign along with the two that was used to defeat him in his reelection for governor were funded by lobbyists Jack Abramoff and Michael Scanlon who made the Choctaw Indians believe that Don Siegelman was a threat to Mississippi gambling and that if he was re-elected that he was going to pass laws that would free the Alabama Poarch Indians.
