Rove-CIA Leak Scandal Clock

-- by Dave Johnson

This just in:

At 3:30pm today, Frank Lautenberg will unveil a new 'Web clock' on the Rove-CIA leak scandal. The calendar will be on display and will be used by lawmakers to highlight the number of days that have passed since the White House leaked the identity of a CIA agent and the Republican controlled Congress hasn¹t held one single hearing on the issue. Additionally, the lawmakers will release a letter to Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader Frist demanding the Congress take action and begin an investigation.
From the Rove-CIA leak scandal clock page:
