"He Was Frightened" -- Details in Rove's IT Guru Connell's Death Emerge

Mike Connell, the GOP's go-to computer guy who died in a solo plane crash late Friday night had had allegedly been threatened with federal prosecution by Karl Rove.


At the link. Many more links there.

One of the posters had this to say: First there was Gov. Mel Carnahan, then Paul Wellstone, and now Mike Connell. The moral? One does not thawrt Republicans and live. No wonder Congressional Democrats always fold; it's self preservation, pure and simple.

Looks that way to me.

White House Email Trail Grows Cold with Death of Bush IT Expert

The AP failed to mention that Connell was also the chief architect of George W. Bush election websites including GeorgeWBush.com and GWB43.com -- the primary email account used by Karl Rove during his tenure as Senior White House Advisor. Connell's company, GovTech Solutions, was responsible for building and managing congressional email servers and firewalls, including websites for the House Judiciary Committee, Financial Services, Ways and Means and Administration Committees. Connell also managed the servers for former Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth J. Blackwell in 2004.

Mike Connell had also been subpoenaed to testify in an Ohio lawsuit regarding his knowledge of vote rigging and the outsourcing of the vote count to Smart Tech servers in Chatanooga, Tennessee before they were rerouted back to Blackwell's office during the 2004 election. The same SmartTech servers were also used to run Connell's GeorgeWBush.com and GWB43.com websites.


Interesting to follow this. I hope it doesn't get lost in the fog.
