Conyers Closes in on Karl and his Rove-bots

Boo-hoo! I made Tim Griffin cry.
He cried. Then he lied.
You remember Tim. Karl Rove's right hand (right claw?) man. The GOP's ragin' cagin' man.
Griffin is the Rove-bot exposed by our BBC Newsnight investigations team as the man who gathered and sent out the infamous 'caging' lists to Republican state chairmen during the 2004 election.
Caging lists, BBC discovered, were used secretly as a basis to challenge the right to vote of thousands of citizens - including the homeless, students and soldiers sent overseas. The day after BBC broadcast that the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, John Conyers, sought our evidence on Griffin, Tim resigned his post as US Attorney for Arkansas. That job was a little gift from Karl Rove who made room for his man Griffin by demanding the firing of US prosecutor Bud Cummins.
Oh, yes, Griffin made a tearful farewell. Of course nothing was his fault--it was all the fault of those mean liberals.
Do these people actually believe they are innocent of any wrongdoing?

Great work, Greg.
Based on the millions of emails destroyed by the Bush administration and the RNC in an attempt to cover-up their widespread illegal activities, the ones you have may be the few that remain, and yet, a prime example of how far into criminality they were willing to go.
Also, a suggestion on where Bush should locate his presidential library: Alcatraz. It's on an island. Has plenty of jail cells. And with just a little refurbising could both house Bush's library and all the criminals in the Bush administration, with a sign beside their jail cell doors reading "Don't feed the monkey." Bush. Cheney. Rove. Gonzales. Griffin. All of the BushCo crooks. Now, that would be tour I'd definitely sign up for.
