George Soros Wins Big Over Karl Rove
A more important controversy, however, is what Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, did with the $300 million that he raised from conservative donors for the purpose of defeating Barack Obama and electing a Republican Senate.
On Fox News, Rove blamed Mitt Romney’s campaign for not responding aggressively to attacks on the Republican presidential nominee. But his close friend and associate, Ed Gillespie, was a top Romney adviser.
Rove’s status as a Fox News contributor and a Wall Street Journal columnist makes it unlikely that these media properties will address this sensitive topic in detail. But Erick Erickson of Red State is tackling what he calls “The Incestuous Bleeding of the Republican Party” through questionable financial ties and arrangements. Focusing on a location where many of these groups are based, Erickson says, “The fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza reveals a tangled web of incestuous relationships among Republican consultants who have made millions all while the GOP went down the tubes.”
