WASHINGTON, DC. Karl Rove, once acclaimed as George Bush’s brain, was arrested yesterday by Capitol Police. Rove had returned to the Capitol for a speaking engagement, when he was confronted by officers with a warrant for his arrest for his failure to testify before Congress.
The specific charges were not available at press time.
Alberto Gonzalez, Rove’s attorney, called the arrest “outrageous!”
“We will do everything to get this American hero out of jail,” Gonzalez told reporters as he hurried into his car after departing the DC jail.
As details become available, we will certainly pass them along.
