Bush League Justice: Alabama Outrage
By Dan Abrams

Committee Approves White House
Contempt Charges
RTTNews/Global Financial Newswires

.....Led by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the panel approved the
contempt citations against White House Chief of Staff
Josh Bolten
and former Deputy Chief of Staff
Karl Rove by a near party-line
vote, moving the matter to the full Senate for consideration.

President Bush, citing executive privilege, has refused to allow
current and former White House officials to testify on the matter
before Congress.

U.S. SENATOR PATRICK LEAHY
Press Release

In a bipartisan vote, the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday found
former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove and White
House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten to be in contempt of Congress for
failing to comply with subpoenas issued in connection with the
Committee’s investigation into the mass firings of U.S. Attorneys.  
Today’s action follows bipartisan votes by the panel earlier this year
to authorize subpoenas for documents and testimony from Bolten
and Rove, which were later issued after the White House, Bolten and
Rove failed to comply with extensive efforts by Chairman Patrick
Leahy (D-Vt.) to encourage voluntary cooperation.

The Best Justice Money Can Buy
by Scott Horton of Harper's

....So who funded the G.O.P.’s vise-like grip on the Alabama
Supreme Court? The answer is complex, but part of it is: Exxon Mobil
did.

In the last six years, Republican candidates for the state’s highest
court have taken more than $5.5 million in campaign contributions
from Exxon Mobil lobbyists and lawyers, and groups allied with the
company.
