Karl Rove Update

 

A federal appeals court Thursday ordered former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman released from prison on bond pending his appeal, saying he is not a flight risk and has shown his appeal will raise "substantial questions of law or fact."...Critics of the prosecution say Siegelman was the target of a smear campaign by President Bush's long-time strategist, Karl Rove.

Rove, who left the White House last year, has denied the charge through his lawyer, who called it "false and foolish."

The House Judiciary Committee has been investigating claims Rove was involved in the dismissal of several U.S. attorneys, and is interested in Siegelman's case as part of the inquiry.

Ode To John “Maverick” McCain
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A law breaker — that’s John McCain,
Treating FEC regs with disdain.
Having championed those rules,
He plays us for fools.
Yet we still hear the mav’rick refrain.
