Send Karl Rove to Jail!


Send Karl to Jail

Karl Rove has made a career out of distorting facts to destroy political rivals. In the case of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, he went even further: he deliberately put a political opponent in prison based on trumped up charges. The GOP couldn’t beat the most successful Democratic politician in recent Alabama history at the ballot box. So instead, at Karl Rove’s direction, the Bush Justice Department used U.S. attorneys to cook up a false criminal case against Siegelman in order to hand the Governor’s Mansion over to the Republican Party.

It’s no surprise that Karl Rove puts politics before due process, democracy and civil rights. That’s why even when faced with a subpoena from Congress, Rove has refused to testify. Unlike Don Siegelman, Karl Rove is breaking the law.

Rove believes that he is not only above the law, but that he controls it. He’s wrong.

Sign our petition. Send Karl Rove to jail.

UPDATE 7/18 2:40PM ET: 20k+ signatures, and Don Siegelman just challenged McCain to compel Rove to testify.

UPDATE 7/21 8PM ET: 77k signatures! Watch Bill O'Reilly tell Rove "Who in their right mind would want to go into a House committee, which is just a dog and pony show?"
