Rove is in Contempt

If any of us behaved like this we'd be hauled off to prison in a New York minute. The only way to reclaim our standing as a nation that promotes the rule of law for EVERYONE is to prosecute crime WHEREVER it occurs. No exceptions, and this little piggy is ready for the oven.
Please sign the petition and pass it on:

Rove Ignores Subpoena, Refuses to Testify

From Robert Greenwald & Brave New Films, here's the petition:
As hard as it may be to believe, the House Judiciary Committee is gearing up to vote on whether to hold Karl Rove in contempt. And your signature on the Send Rove to Jail petition provides much-needed attention and support for upholding the law. The petition received over 108,000 signatures-a mighty message that conveys the patriotic outcry over Rove's failure to comply with a Congressional subpoena.
This afternoon, Brave New Films Editorial Director ZP Heller will head to Washington DC with our partners the People for the American Way, the Campaign for America's Future, and the Campaign for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to deliver the petition to Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA). They will take our message all the way to the HJC, and Rep. Sanchez will ensure our voices are heard when the HJC votes on holding Rove in contempt.
This is the first critical step in punishing Rove under the law, but it is just the beginning. Once we're through the HJC, we'll take our campaign to the full House. Rove's action is an insult to the most fundamental value of our country and our democracy: the rule of law. It's high time he's held accountable.
