Failure To Appear

Failure To Appear

Former White House Grand Vizier Karl Rove ignored a congressional subpoena and refused to testify about political pressure at the Justice Department during his reign.

We thought Mr. Rove was just much too busy down in Texas, writing his book and infecting vegetables with Salmonella, but we are told he has “left the county” on a long-planned trip his lawyer neglected to tell the congressional comittee about. Pehaps he took the advice of General Philip Henry Sheridan, leased out his Texas residence, and gone somewhere warm to do advance work for his retirement.

In Washington, Federal Marshals help arrest those who fail to appear for local court dates, and a District of Columbia judge just had 100 people arrested, shackled, and thrown in jail when they failed to appear for jury duty. Representative Linda Sánchez (D, CA-39), thinks Mr. Rove deserves no less.

Where is this guy we have been hearing about, Dog the Bounty Hunter? Call J’onn J’onzz, Manhunter from Mars, too. Get them on Rove’s trail ASAP.
