From the AP:

A House panel Wednesday voted to cite former top White House aide Karl Rove for contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena to answer questions about the dismissals of several federal prosecutors as its Senate counterpart explored punishments for an array of alleged Bush administration misdeeds.

Voting 20-14 along party lines, the House Judiciary Committee said that Rove had broke the law by failing to appear at a July 10 hearing on allegations of White House influence over the Justice Department, including whether Rove encouraged prosecutions against Democrats such as former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

The committee decision is only a recommendation, and it was unclear whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would allow a final vote. Rove has denied any involvement with Justice decisions, and the White House has said Congress has no authority to compel testimony from current and former advisers.

Go get him. Put him down in the hole.

And what will come of it? Not much. Nancy "the human doormat" Pelosi is not likely to allow it to come to a vote. And if it does and passes then what? Mukasey is the f'king attorney general...

Dems are scared of their own shadows and can't even get the "Blue Dogs" from their own party in line.

Nancy & Harry & Karl would all fit quite nicely down in the hole...
