And Now a Word From Karl Rove

Karl Rove, formerly Bush’s Brain, spent the last four years milking billionaires to fund huge PACs to defeat the Democratic president and congressional candidates.

He also can’t handle the paperwork. His Crossroads GPS organization never filed as a charitable organization in its home state of Virginia, as required by law. Crossroads GPS raised and spent tens of millions of dollars. Fee to register with Virginia’s Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs: $325.

Senator John Ensign (R-NV).

Apparently engaging Thy Neighbor’s Wife to Commit Adultery doesn’t require a website, just a blind spot for two out of Ten Commandments (and Thou Shalt Not Steal looks a bit shaky, too).

On the Battle Born PAC website, Senator Ensign quotes the Chaplain of the U.S. Senate in speaking about the Battle Born crusade:
