Karl Rove in the Land of Enchantment

When you Google: Karl Rove scandal, Heather Wilson makes the top 10 search results. Despite a history of “he said, she said,” former Rep. Wilson (R) asked Rove, the former deputy chief of staff for President Bush, to join her at an Aug. 11 fundraising reception. The event in Albuquerque will benefit her 2012 campaign.

In 2006, Rove and Wilson were implicated in a scandal involving the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, including N.M. Attorney General David Iglesias.

Rove says Wilson called on the Bush administration to fire Iglesias because he was not progressing quickly enough with a corruption probe into state democrats. Wilson denies that she said anything about the matter. “Attorneygate” ended without criminal charges, but U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales resigned.

Rove left the Bush administration in 2007 amid rampant unpopularity due, in part, to his leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity.

The campaign ties between Rove and Wilson prompted outrage from democrats, who say this is why she was named one of “Congress' most corrupt members by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington in 2007.”

Wilson, who served in the House of Representatives from 1998-2009, entered next year's race to fill the seat vacated by Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D). She is running on a platform of protecting the free-market system, economy and limited government.
