Samuel Hook purchased the Silver Springs, Maryland, lobbying firm GrassRoots Interactive from Republican lawyer Edward B. Miller in September 2003, according to state documents, for a reported $10,000. [1]

Hook, who originally came to Greenberg Traurig after having worked at the now-defunct accounting firm Arthur Andersen, and his wife, Shana Tesler, were associates at the Greenberg Traurig law firm with indicted lobbyist and Republican fund-raiser Jack Abramoff. [2]

Tesler followed Abramoff from Greenberg Traurig to the lobbying firm Cassidy & Associates "after he was ousted from Greenberg [in March 2004] following news reports of his questionable dealings with Indian gaming tribes. [3]

On July 11, 2005, Hook and his wife, who had "reportedly been subpoenaed by the Justice Department taskforce" investigating Abramoff, left the country "en route to a new life in Israel." [4]
