House panel votes to cite Rove for contempt
By Laurie Kellman of AP

A House panel Wednesday voted to cite former top White House aide
Karl Rove for contempt of Congress as its Senate counterpart publicly
pursued possible punishments for an array of alleged past and
present Bush administration misdeeds.

Voting along party lines, the House Judiciary Committee said that
Rove had broke the law by failing to appear at a July 10 hearing on
allegations of White House influence over the Justice Department,
including whether Rove encouraged prosecutions against Democrats.

The committee decision is only a recommendation, and it was unclear
whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would allow a final vote. Rove
has denied any involvement with Justice decisions, and the White
House has said Congress has no authority to compel testimony from
current and former advisers.

Jill Simpson Calls on Pelosi to Find Rove in
Full Contempt
by Glynn Wilson of Locust Fork Journal

Judge Bates just issued his opinion in the Miers and Bolten contempt
case--and he ruled in favor of the House. Miers will have to appear
and Bolten will have to turn over the documents a description of the
documents he is withholding. (I guess all it took was for me to post this
post.)

This also means Rove will have to appear, as Bates threw out the
notion of "absolute immunity."

A Tale of Three (Electronic Voting) Elections
By Adam Cohen for NYT editorial

....Alabama’s 2002 Race for Governor — Former Gov. Don Siegelman
has been in the news because it appears that federal prosecutors
may have put him in prison for political reasons. The controversy has
brought attention to the odd way he lost the governorship.

Mr. Siegelman went to sleep on election night thinking he had won.
But overnight, Republican Baldwin County reported that a glitch had
given Mr. Siegelman, a Democrat, about 6,000 extra votes. When
they were subtracted, Republican Rob Riley won by roughly 3,000
votes.
