WaPo: Rove's office sent precinct info to DOJ

Things seem to be looking worse for Karl Rove. From The Washington Post in a story dated for tomorrow's edition:
Rove, in particular, was preoccupied with pressing Gonzales and his aides about alleged voting problems in a handful of battleground states, according to testimony and documents.

Last October, just weeks before the midterm elections, Rove's office sent a 26-page packet to Gonzales's office containing precinct-level voting data about Milwaukee. A Justice aide told congressional investigators that he quickly put the package aside, concerned that taking action would violate strict rules against investigations shortly before elections, according to statements disclosed this week.
Oh my. Wonder what we'll ever find out about the Washington state stuff? If only we had a majority in Congress -- oh, yeah right. We do.

My crystal ball has a busted potentiometer, but this could get extremely interesting for certain folks here in the state.
