Lawyer was fired after Rove called

AUSTIN – White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove personally called the Texas secretary of state about a newspaper story quoting a staff lawyer about whether Mr. Rove was eligible to vote in the state.

The lawyer was subsequently fired.

Secretary of State Roger Williams said that he decided to dismiss the lawyer after talking with Mr. Rove but that the White House adviser didn't request that he do so.

"Absolutely not," said Mr. Williams, a longtime supporter of President Bush and a major GOP fundraiser.

Well of course Rove had her whacked. What good is it being being Beelzebub of you can't smite your enemies from time to time?

Ah, Texas. It's a whole other Third World Country.

Do you think that Mexico would be willing to take it back?
