Person of the Day: Karl Rove


KARL ROVE, previously untouchable Bush mastermind, now finally fingered by the consequences of his own “genius.” Emails now reveal the connection between the firing of Federal Prosecutor Bud Cummins in favor of the placement of Rove’s favored hatchet man, Timothy Griffin (famous for “helping” vote counts along, especially in minority districts in Arkansas). Better late than never.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
