Echo chamber: Could Karl Rove Go to Jail?

Rove behind bars?

The House Judiciary Committe just voted 20-14 to hold Karl Rove in contempt!

WHAT THIS MEANS: The decision by the HJC to hold Karl Rove in contempt is a recommendation to the full House, who can now vote to adopt the recommendation with a contempt resolution by a simple majority vote. Should they pass a contempt resolution, the Sergeant-at-Arms for the chamber would be ordered to arrest Karl Rove and bring him to the floor of the House to answer to the charges and to be issued punishment. The case would then be referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who would in turn refer it to a grand jury. If convicted, Rove could face between one month and one year in jail.

    Wow. UB is probably having second thoughts about the Edwards – Rove debate scheduled next month. If Rove goes to jail and Edwards is still explaining his relationship with the alleged mistress, what is left to discuss.

    one can only hope…. but as a drooling Henry Hyde said when he chaired the Clinton impeachment torture hearings…. “hope springs eternal” ….

  • Could a better pig be put in the pokey than this pasty blob of hatred ? Rove can pave the way and reserve good tee times for himself and Harriet, Gonzo, Rummy, Shooter and the gang. The only caveat is that you know they’ll be in a club fed facility where they really won’t enjoy the true experience of the block and the yard. Beggars can’t be choosers though I’ll be glad to see this piece of traitorous shit wearing stripes.

    He shouldn’t go to jail, he should be taken to a dumpster.
