Dear Supporter,

My friends at CREDO Mobile/CREDO Action have been very supportive of my fight for justice and have been active in the push to have Karl Rove come forth and testify. I've included one of their action alerts below and I hope you'll sign their petition asking Attorney General Eric Holder to uphold his duties and take swift action to compel Karl Rove to testify -- or face the consequences. Please take a look:

Karl Rove is all out of second chances.

On February 23, Karl Rove was supposed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in accordance with a Congressional subpoena. But Rove didn't show up. Again.

Rove didn't show up last year when he was ordered to testify, because his old friend President Bush said that Rove's testimony was protected by executive privilege. Now that Bush is no longer in office, we may finally have an opportunity to learn the truth about his alleged misdeeds, from authorizing voter suppression tactics to orchestrating the arrest of Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

But even though we have a new president, Karl Rove is still acting like he's entitled to all the privileges that came with his old job. So far, the Obama administration has let him get away with it.

The Obama administration has the power to clarify that Rove no longer has access to the "executive privilege" line of defense - since the executive in question is no longer in office. If that happened, a judge would have a lot more power to compel Rove to comply with the subpoena, and we might finally begin to learn the truth about his activities.

Click here to tell Attorney General Eric Holder to take swift action to compel Karl Rove to comply with Congressional subpoenas. The American people deserve better than smoke and mirrors - we deserve the truth.

Thank you for working to build a better world.

The fight to discover the truth is being fought by many, including myself and my friends at CREDO. Thank you so much for joining us in that fight and keeping the pressure on to make Karl Rove honor his subpoena. I hope you'll sign their petition today!
