Siegelman On Rove

Huffington Post:

“Karl Rove saying he’s had nothing to do with firing U.S. Attorneys and nothing to do with my case is like President Bush saying he’s had nothing to do with the war in Iraq because he hasn’t pulled a trigger,” said Siegelman.

“I think Rove is probably the most devious and evil political operative who has been trained to come on to the political scene in certainly the last fifty years,” he said. “I can’t think of anybody in the annals of history who could even rival this man’s pernicious thoughts. It is a lifetime’s work for him… I think he learned two things from Watergate: you don’t need to establish a secret plumbers union at a mid level office in the White House when you can take over Department of Justice and have them do your dirty work for you, and secondly, you don’t leave tapes behind, you destroy evidence.”
