Back in the Saddle
Lots of news greeted me upon my return from a beach vacation with family.
At the top of my list is a story thread Howling Latina has faithfully followed since it broke. Robert Novak leaking the name of Valerie Plame.
MSNBC reports that Valerie Plame is suing Vice President Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby and Karl Rove.
Oh, how sweet it is!
According to the news story, the trio along with 10 unnamed White House officials and/or operatives are being sued by Plame and her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, for placing their family in danger by their reckless outing.
The CIA officer whose identity was leaked to reporters sued Vice President Dick Cheney, his former top aide and presidential adviser Karl Rove on Thursday, accusing them and other White House officials of conspiring to destroy her
In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, Valerie Plame and her husband, Joseph Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador, accused Cheney, Rove and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby of revealing Plame’s CIA identity in seeking revenge against Wilson for criticizing the Bush administration’s motives in Iraq.
For all the GOPers who cheered Paula Jones when she sued President Bill Clinton and the Supreme Court ruled it was hunky-dory, this special toast is for you!
