Did the Rove Crime Syndicate Strike Again?

Has the United States, the most powerful nation on earth, been led for the past eight years by a crime syndicate?

Many Americans would recoil at such a thought. "We're not Sicily," they would say.

But a growing body of evidence suggests we might be more like Sicily than we care to admit. And the latest grim evidence came Friday evening when a plane crashed in a residential area near Akron, Ohio.

The pilot and lone occupant of the plane, Michael Connell, was killed. Connell was
an information-technology expert for the Republican Party and was set to testify in a lawsuit about possible rigging of elections in Ohio.

Connell and his wife, Heather, reportedly had received threats from GOP strategist Karl Rove, and attorneys in the Ohio case had asked the U.S. Justice Department
to provide protection for the Connells.

Larisa Alexandrovna, of the blog at-Largely, said Connell had become
a central witness in the Ohio election-fraud case.

The Akron Beacon Journal followed up with a story today, focusing on
Connell's connections to the Bush family and possible election fraud. Bob Fitrakis, an attorney who helped bring the Ohio lawsuit, said Connell's death "sent a chill down my spine."

"He was the Bush family's IT guru. He had tremendous knowledge and information."

Velvet Revolution, an election-reform Web site, reported that one of its investigators
had been talking with Connell about ways he could come forward with information about vote rigging.

Connell, an experienced pilot, had to abort two recent planned flights out of fear that his plane had been sabotaged, VR reports. A Connell associate had told VR that Connell was responsible for destruction of Bush White House e-mails and setting up an off-the-grid e-mail system.

Friday night's plane crash is under investigation, and a likely cause is not expected to be known for months.

Mark Crispin Miller, reporting at his blog News From Underground, writes about a growing list of people who
have met untimely ends while getting close to information about alleged dirty tricks during the Bush/Rove era.

The title of Miller's post? "Bloody Karl."

As a resident of Alabama, I've seen signs of a possible Bush/Rove crime syndicate. In fact, I would argue that such an organization probably has its roots in Alabama, thanks to Rove's electoral success in state-court races in the 1990s.

Here's a prediction: If U.S. Rep. John Conyers, incoming Attorney General Eric Holder, and a few gutsy journalists ever get to the bottom of the Bush Justice Department scandal, several key players will have connections to Alabama.

Consider just a few events in this neck of the woods:

I live in Birmingham, Alabama, and work in higher education. I became interested in justice-related issues after experiencing gross judicial corruption in Alabama state courts. This corruption has a strong political component. The corrupt judges are (more...)
