This article reports an incident that is significant – the corruption is clearly in the White House, the trail of slime leads right to Karl Rove’s office. The statement by the official White House spokesperson in the last paragraph is as nice a summary as I’ve ever heard of the attitude of these criminals toward the American people. Matt of TiI
“Susan B. Ralston, a former aide to the disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff who went on to work for the presidential adviser Karl Rove, has resigned from the White House in the wake of a report that she served as a conduit between the two men.
Ms. Ralston submitted her resignation to President Bush on Thursday night, saying the time had come “to pursue other opportunities.”
But administration officials acknowledged that she quit as a result of a Congressional report, released last week, that documented hundreds of contacts between Mr. Abramoff and the White House.
“A protracted discussion of the report was not in anyone’s best interest, and when she chose to step down, we supported her decision,” a White House spokeswoman, Dana Perino, said today.”
