Like YT, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) don't believe Karl Rove when he sez he had no involvement with Bush's Basket Passers and Shit Slinger Freaks for Bush, I mean fundraisers and those awful SBVT. CREW has filed a FOIA Request for the whole truth and nothin' but the truth:
CREW’s executive director Melanie Sloan stated “Despite evidence to the contrary, the Bush Administration has repeatedly claimed that it has nothing to do with SBVT or its ads. If this is true, then the White House should have no qualms about releasing information regarding any contacts between White House officials and those connected with SBVT.”

Sloan decided to send the FOIA after reading that, upon being asked whether she had worked with White House officials, SBVT public relations coordinator Merrie Spaeth said “The answer is ‘no’ unless you refresh my memory.” (NYT 8/20/04). Sloan said that she was also skeptical of Bush political advisor Karl Rove’s claim that he has not spoken with his friend and large Republican donor Bob Perry in over a year. The FOIA was sent, said Sloan, “to gather the information Ms. Spaeth, Karl Rove and others may need to have their memories refreshed as to whether or not SBVT illegally coordinated with the White House.”

Hmmmm. How will Team Bush spin what's probably more bad news for them? Oh, yeah. It's Clinton's fault. Orange Alert!
