Karl Rove, You Got Served

Posted: Updated:

Karl Rove was served with a subpoena Sunday, Oct. 24th, 2010, as he arrived at CBS studios to appear on "Face the Nation." The subpoena was to compel Rove to provide a deposition in a lawsuit that stems from the 2004 election in Ohio. Despite the fact that news crews from CBS and CNN taped Rove being served, neither have reported it or aired the footage.

I sat down with the attorneys who issued the subpoena, Clifford Arnebeck and Bob Fitrakis, who explained how their suit reached this point and what Mr. Rove's legal obligations are, considering his aversion to appearing under oath.

This is the sworn affidavit signed by the process server who personally delivered the subpoena to Rove. The server notes that two camera crews were filming the exchange, from CNN and CBS.

Below is a radio broadcast "Fight Back with Bob Fitrakis and Connie Gadell Netwon," that I also was a guest on. The attorneys in the King Lincoln case discuss their subpoena to Rove, as well as their separate scheduled hearing with the Ohio Elections Commission to challenge the legality of campaign fund-raising across multiple party campaigns, as Rove's groups have been doing this year in Ohio.
