Novak Names Sources in CIA Leak Case

Columnist Robert Novak revealed for the first time, in a column to be released Wednesday, that both Karl Rove and former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow had confirmed Valerie Plame’s status as a CIA agent.

The Most Overpaid White House Staffers

The National Journal just published the new salary list for Oval Office employees, and Think Progress deliciously singled out a few who definitely aren’t earning their money. For instance: Deborah Nirmala Misir, the ethics advisor, earns $114,688; Stuart Baker, director for lessons learned, earns $106,641.

Bush’s Signing Statements: The Top 10 List

A blogger surfaced The Boston Globe’s list of President Bush’s most egregious use of signing statements (the “interpretations” Bush makes of about-to-be-signed bills to avoid following the laws’ intent). Worst one: Bush asserts a right to waive the torture ban if doing so will prevent terrorist attacks.

Jack Abramoff Must Be Smiling…

... Because the House is considering an anti-gambling bill that would include an exemption for horse racing and intrastate lotteries. The disgraced lobbyist worked to ensure the latter in a bill several years ago.
