This doesn't look good.
Rove Linked to Prosecution of Ex- Alabama Governor
In the rough and tumble of Alabama politics, the scramble for power is often a blood sport. At the moment, the state's former Democratic governor, Don Siegelman, stands convicted of bribery and conspiracy charges and faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison. Siegelman has long claimed that his prosecution was driven by politically motivated, Republican-appointed U.S. attorneys.
Now Karl Rove, the President's top political strategist, has been implicated in the controversy. A longtime Republican lawyer in Alabama swears she heard a top GOP operative in the state say that Rove "had spoken with the Department of Justice" about "pursuing" Siegelman, with help from two of Alabama's U.S. attorneys.
Ha!! This may be that "politically motivated witch hunt" Tom Delay was blathering about. Just the wrong state.
Read the whole article.... it involves "siccing my girls on him" and lots of calls to "Karl." Involved, but very interesting.
