Uh... I always assumed he just crawled out from beneath a rock and that the first word he ever uttered (and the most frequent one he still utters), is Fuck. But here's this from the Wayne Madsen Report:
October 16, 2006 -- George W. Bush's "Svengali" Karl Rove seems very sure that the GOP will not lose control of the House and Senate in the mid-terms, even though polls indicate a huge Democratic tsunami is building that will turn control of both bodies over to the Democrats. Rove's name has come up in the Mark Foley scandal at a time the furtive presidential counselor has been busy traveling around the country, obviously attempting to tamper with the election process at the municipal, ward, and precinct levels. Rove, who allegedly knew about Foley's problem with underage male pages, pressured and possibly blackmailed the Florida congressman into running for re-election in 2006. Rove's cross-currents with the GOP "Velvet Mafia," the closeted gay network within the Republican leadership is nothing new. The editor was the first to disclose the homosexuality of Rove's adoptive father in a June 4, 2006 article:
"WMR, June 4, 2006 -- In mid-summer 2004, some time after I wrote an article for CounterPunch about the agit-prop crimes of Karl Rove and while I was speaking out against Rove on a number of radio shows, I was contacted by a credible source in Palm Springs, California who told me he was talking to one of his acquaintances who was just getting over the death of his longtime 'significant other.' Then the Palm Spring resident dropped the big bombshell -- the acquaintance's 'significant other' was Louis Rove, the adoptive father of Karl Rove. Louis Rove reportedly suffered from emphysema."Later, in their book, The Architect: Karl Rove and the Master Plan for Absolute Power, Texas journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater, confirmed that Louis Rove was gay. Rove, who was recently quoted by former White House "faith-based initiatives" coordinator David Kuo in his new book, Tempting Faith, describes the publicly anti-gay Rove as scornful of Christian fundamentalists, referring to them as "nuts" and "goofy."
Rove may have more to worry about from his erstwhile Religious Right allies. There is much talk in Washington about who appears on a mysterious "list" of closeted gay Republicans. This editor believes it is beyond time to relate a story about information received about Rove in 2002 from a former senior editor for the right-wing Washington Times publication consortium. During one late evening at the National Press Club, the editor stormed in clearly upset. He told me, "goddamit, Rove is b***f****** [a well-known GOP lobbyist and policymaker in DC]." I asked him if he was sure. He replied, "Yes, I can't do anything with this story [a reference to his right-wing publisher] but you can have it if you want." I've had the story since 2002 and now it is time to release it. The GOP is rife with closeted individuals whose secret preferences have clouded and continue to cloud their judgment. We have seen this clearly in the cases of Mark Foley, Jim Kolbe (prior to his coming out), Charlie Crist, and other GOP officials, including congressional staffers and officials of the Republican National Committee.
