Where Isn’t Karl Rove Talking These Days?
by the Editorial Board of the NYT

Karl Rove is suddenly omnipresent. He has a regular gig on Fox
News. He has a column in Newsweek, contributes to the Wall Street
Journal, and reportedly is about to write a book.

Makes you wonder if there is somewhere Mr. Rove is not appearing.

That would be the House Judiciary Committee, where members want
to talk with him about the very suspicious prosecution of former
Alabama Governor Don Siegelman. The Siegelman camp has
charged that Mr. Rove was a driving force in the prosecution, and that
it was done for political reasons — to prevent Mr. Siegelman, the
state’s strongest Democrat, from running for governor again.

Rove refuses call to testify under oath
by Ben Evans of Associated Press/Montgomery Advertiser

A House Judiciary Committee deadline passed Monday with former
White House adviser Karl Rove standing by his refusal to testify about
allegations that he pushed the Justice Department to prosecute
former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

In his latest offer to settle the matter, Rove sent the panel a letter
offering to respond to questions in writing, according to his attorney.
But he reiterated that he would not testify publicly and under oath.

Committee leaders did not immediately answer questions about how
they will respond. Earlier this month, they threatened to subpoena
Rove if he did not agree to appear voluntarily by Monday.

answer questions in writing
by Mary Orndorff of the Birmingham News

....Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney, said he notified the Democrats on
Friday that Rove would answer written questions, but had not heard
back from the committee as of Monday evening. Efforts to reach a
spokeswoman for the committee Monday were unsuccessful.

The committee Democrats had already rejected Rove's earlier offer to
answer questions privately with no transcript, saying then that they
needed the transcript "to obtain a straightforward and clear record."
