Rep. Tancredo, Urge Bush to Fire Karl Rove

Dear Rep. Tancredo,

June 10, 2004, President Bush affirmed that he would fire anyone in his Administration who leaked the identity of a CIA agent. Now we have discovered that Karl Rove, through his attorney, admitted he did just that, yet the Administration is silent on the subject, and Mr. Rove is still working in the White House.

At issue is not whether or not a crime was committed. Karl Rove, out of his own mouth and through surrogates such as White House Spokesman Scott McClellan, repeatedly stated that he was not involved in leaking Valerie Plame's identity, nor in talking to reporters about her, and the President committed himself to firing those who would leak secret identities.

I call upon you to hold the Administration accountable for its words and its actions. The President should stand by his word and fire Karl Rove.

Julie O.
