I just sent Grassley an article about Rove pressuring Repugs on Judiciary
and asked if this was what was going on with him. Because so many of the points he made sounded like they came straight from Rove.

I was respectful and asked him to do the right thing for Iowans. Because we didnt elect him to protect Karl Rove.

I am sure it will be quickly deleted.

Article here http://www.insightmag.com/Media/MediaManager/Rove2.htm

<snip>

The White House has been twisting arms to ensure that no Republican member votes against President Bush in the Senate Judiciary Committees investigation of the administration's unauthorized wiretapping.

Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.

"It's hardball all the way," a senior GOP congressional aide said.

Several Du Threads about it -- here's one:

1. I've washed my hands of Grassley
I continue to call to tell him my views, but I don't go out of my way anymore to request an answer from his office. I'm saving my energy for his next campaign, so I can volunteer full-tilt for the dem opposing him.

4. I don't think he will run in 2010
He is getting up there in age and I think this is his last term. My cousin was an intern with him the summer of 2004 and she told me that was her feeling.

With that said, hopefully Nussle doesn't win the Governor's race and then runs for Senate for Grassley's seat. :puke:

2. Yesterday, I received one of his automated letters
thanking me for my feeling about the John Roberts nomination.

I've lost interest in trying to communicate with some of these people. It just seems like a waste of time.

3. I hate that
I have gotten some letters from Grassley and Rep. Latham that come months and months after I first contacted them. Most of the time I have forgotten why I sent them the email in the first place.
