the stench of republican corruption gathers more attention

The obscure Office of Special Counsel has opened an investigation into Karl Rove's activities. As Tom Hamburger writes in the Los Angeles Times, "The new investigation, which will examine the firing of at least one U.S. attorney, missing White House e-mails, and White House efforts to keep presidential appointees attuned to Republican political priorities, could create a substantial new problem for the Bush White House."

And it isn't an investigation being run by Democrats so the White House can't boo-hoo about a partisan witch-hunt. And it will look at a wide range of Rove's political activities. "Political" is actually redundant -- EVERYTHING Rove does is political.

Let's hope it also looks at the 2004 Ohio elections, where annoying little tidbits like the fact that several Bush-leaning districts reported better than 100% voter turnout still give indications that the final vote there maybe really DID better track with initial exit polling data. Remember, when dissing exit polls, that they tend to be very accurate -- accurate enough that they prevented the Ukrainian government from stealing its last election -- and ALL of the "exit poll errors" in 2004 were corrected in a way to FAVOR the Republicans, a fishy set of coincidences.
