Maddow mocks Karl Rove for bizarre non-sequitur about Obama’s lawyer

Last week, Obama’s campaign lawyer filed a compliant with the Federal Elections Commission over Rove’s organization, Crossroads GPS. He claimed the organization was unlawfully hiding its donors from the public by registering as a “social welfare” organization.

When asked about the complaint on Fox News, Rove went off on a tangent, claiming the lawyer once represented a woman who accused him of encouraging her to investigate the “sexual shenanigans” of a Democratic governor.

“Completely bizarre,” Maddow said. “One of the strangest, bluntest and most non-sequitur diversionary tactics I have seen on any subject in this campaign season. The only reason I think it might be important is because Karl Rove is supposed to be a slick guy, right?”

But it turns out what Rove said wasn’t just bizarre — it wasn’t even true. Obama’s campaign lawyer Robert Bauer had no connection to the woman who accused Rove of wrongdoing.
