Karl Rove

Original post made by Lisa Cohen, Old Palo Alto, on May 21, 2008

I ask that vigorously support Rep Waxler’s initiative by demanding that Karl Rove appear before Congress to explain serious allegations of malfeasance that he used the US Justice Department to take down a prominent Democratic politician. It is alleged that Mr. Rove personally instigated the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman. The case has been criticized by legal experts, and 52 former state attorney generals - both Republicans and Democrats - have criticized the case and called for an investigation.
If Rove refuses to testify voluntarily and ignores the subpoenas that will certainly be issued, he should be held in Inherent Contempt of the House of Representatives.
No American is above the law. None of us should be able to ignore Congress without consequence. If Mr. Rove ignores a subpoena from the Judiciary Committee, then the House of Representatives should pass an Inherent Contempt citation and exercise their right to send the House Sergeant-of-Arms to gather Mr. Rove and bring him before Congress to testify.

I would be very pleased if the guy with the Dewey mustache were to write up a bill of indictment and then demand that everyone who fit the pattern, irrespective of party, be called to account. "I've got a litle list, I've got a little list..."
