Truthout Editor's Note: Ralston previously worked as a personal secretary to Jack Abramoff, the Republican power lobbyist who plead guilty to conspiracy and wire fraud charges in connection with defrauding Indian tribes. While working with Abramoff, Ralston arranged fundraisers and events at Washington MCI Center skyboxes for members of Congress and their staff.

Ralston also became embroiled in Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's CIA leak probe. She reportedly testified before a grand jury about the reasons she did not log a telephone call to Rove in July, 2003 from Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper, who says he was told by Rove that Valerie Plame Wilson worked for the CIA. -ma/TO
