'Conflict of Interest' Karl

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

From the Washington Times' magazine:

The White House has been twisting arms to ensure that no Republican member votes against President Bush in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation of the administration's unauthorized wiretapping.

Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.

"It's hardball all the way," a senior GOP congressional aide said.
Uh, does anybody else see a problem with Karl Rove, who abused the national security apparatus by leaking the name of a CIA operative for political gain, pressuring members of Congress not to hold accountable the Bush administration for abusing the national security apparatus?

Almost borders on conspiracy to obstruct justice, wouldn't you think?

Not to mention, do the GOP members of Congress really want to be put in the position to defend why they caved to blackmail from a man who's a known-leaker and walking-threat-to-national-security?
