ROVE's Former Assistant, Ralston Seeking Immunity To Testify Before Waxman's Committee
From Evans-Novak Political Report ...

Rove's former assistant, Susan Ralston, is currently seeking immunity to testify before Waxman's committee. Ralston is a former assistant to Jack Abramoff, the disgraced Washington super-lobbyist and Republican fund-raiser. As Rove's gatekeeper, she became special assistant to the President and the highest-ranking Filipino-American in the administration. For Waxman, she is a link between Abramoff and Rove. Ralston was deposed behind closed doors prior to her request for immunity. According to her friends, she has nothing to say that would cause problems for Rove. Her request for immunity was forwarded to the Justice Department, whose recommendation may or may not be followed by Congress.

4. Interesting that her friends felt it necessary to publicly reassure Karl.

8. Perhaps Abramoff has finally made it to her
in his "talking so much there's no time to eat" confessions!

9. I suspect this has a lot to do with public corruption, lobbyists, bribes, buying DoJ, etc.
Edited on Sat May-19-07 03:06 PM by L. Coyote
The real action is in places of power, like the DoJ prosecuting corporate fraud, in Congress writing laws like giant tax breaks, or in contracts, procurment, and the bribes that go with it. That inside track is certainly more significant that hanging with Rove, the colorful, engorged piata at the sacrificial lamb party. Rove makes a great target and distraction hanging out in front of the crowd. But, he's just an aide to the guy throwing the party, the Decider himself.
