Rove in another personal attack on witness to
GOP crimes
Wayne Masden of the WayneMasden Report

....In the [GQ] interview, Rove falsely claims that Bush-Cheney
Transition Headquarters was in Austin, Texas when it was in fact in an
office in McLean, Virginia that was formerly used by Dick Cheney for a
Haliburton office. WMR previously reported that as least one phone
call originated from McLean transition office to the office of Pamela
Martin and Associates escort service.

Rove caught in his own worst nightmare...
by Larisa Alexandrovna of At-Largely

....I have it on good authority, however, that Rove was adamant that
GQ ask questions about Jill Simpson - and guess what? They asked
him about Ms. Simpson:

    "[rolls his eyes] Will you do me a favor and go on Power Line
    and Google "Dana Jill Simpson" [the Republican lawyer who
    told 60 Minutes that Rove asked her to take a picture of
    Governor Siegelman cheating on his wife]? She's a complete
    lunatic. I've never met this woman. This woman was not
    involved in any campaign in which I was involved. I have yet to
    find anybody who knows her. And what the media has done on
    this… No one has read the 143-page deposition that she gave
    congressional investigators—143 pages. When she shows up
    to give her explanation of all this, do you know how many times
    my name appears? Zero times. Nobody checked!"

No, it appears twice actually and both times as "Karl," once in a
handwritten memo from Rob Riley Jr. (Governor Bob Riley's son) on a
FEMA letter to Simpson and once in Simpson's discussion of the
November 2002 conversation in which Bill Canary is alleged to have
discussed Siegelman with "Karl."

...Finally, and most importantly,  I happen to know what the other
questions were and what the other answers were. Clearly, someone at
GQ had the sense to not run the rest of the interview as it pertains to
Simpson,  but boy if they had, then Rove would have hanged himself
on a noose of his own making.

Let us just say that he knew a good deal about her private life
(marriages, career, etc.), her family (including some rather personal
information about one member), and her children. Not surprisingly, he
twisted the facts of what he knew (somehow) into outright lies
anyway.  The things he lied about too would normally be laughable,  
but coming from him seem strangely obsessive.

I am thinking that we will soon see those allegations - which
apparently did not make the editorial cut at GQ - appear on right-wing
blogs. My guess is that Powerline will be first, since it is the one Rove
keeps telling everyone to read.  When you do see those allegations
about Ms. Simpson surface - and I have no doubt you will - remember,
Rove tried to plant it at GQ first.

Rove Disputes Claims About Ala. Governor
by Ben Evans of the Associated Press for Google News

....
Asked why CBS aired her allegations, [Karl Rove] said, "Because
CBS is a shoddy operation." It aired the story to get good ratings, he
said.

Kevin Tedesco, a CBS spokesman, said "60 Minutes" stands by the
story and will report on it further Sunday with an interview with
Siegelman, who was recently released from prison while his corruption
conviction is on appeal. Tedesco said Siegelman would challenge
Rove to testify under oath.

Simpson's attorney, meanwhile, said she would ask GQ to retract
Rove's remarks and apologize to Simpson.

In the original "60 Minutes" broadcast aired in February, Simpson said
Rove asked her to try to find evidence that Siegelman was cheating
on his wife. She said it wasn't the first time that Rove — who was
heavily involved in Alabama politics before moving to Washington —
had asked her to find dirt on Democratic politicians.
