House Judiciary Committee Subpoenas Karl Rove

It took a while, and it will set off a guaranteed horse hockey tsunami in Washington. MSNBC actually broke into their obsessive "breaking" coverage of the Texas polygamist child custody mess to report that the House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed Karl Rove in an effort to compel testimony concerning his alleged role in the indictment of popular former Alabama governor Don Siegelman, citing this AP bulletin.

House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers has been on the offensive for nearly a month, making it clear that if Rove did not voluntarily testify and defied a subpoena, he would move to find Rove in contempt of Congress.

The move comes on the same day that the McCain campaign announced that they had tapped discredited Rove protégé Tim Griffin – who was forced to resign as US Attorney for Arkansas after being tied to Republican voter suppression campaigns  – to run the campaign's opposition research operation against probable Democratic nominee Barack Obama.
