2. Rove’s Sorry Victim Act
By Scott Horton for Harper's No Comment

....One curious aspect of the Rove column is its heavy attack on a
relatively unknown Republican lawyer from Alabama named Jill
Simpson. He singles out Simpson, charging that Committee staff
considered her not credible and claiming that she refused
cooperation with investigators. Rove’s claims are totally false. If
Committee staffers considered Simpson not credible, why did they
release a report that draws heavily on her testimony, demonstrating
that it is corroborated on key points with supporting documents? On
the other hand, evidence collected by the Committee and by news
outlets around the country provide a solid basis to question Rove’s
credibility, as Representative John Conyers noted. Rove’s own
conduct fuels these suspicions: he struggled for two years to avoid
testifying under oath, and when he testified he gave evasive, oblique
half answers, always conditioned on present recollection. Rove also
states that Simpson refused to cooperate with a Department of Justice
investigation. This claim is curious coming from Rove, who in fact
refused to cooperate with the Justice Department’s probe, but it is
also untrue, as I noted in an interview with Raw Story yesterday.
