Karl Rove Indicted For Perjury?

It’s really quite amusing to watch liberal bloggers fall all over themselves linking to a story at the ironically named Truthout that purports to break news that Karl Rove has been indicted. Of course no such thing has actually happened.

The author of the story, freelance writer Jason Leopold, seems to be working his way down the media chain; going from respectable outlets like The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times, to online magazine Salon, and now a kooky site like Truthout. There’s a reason his work isn’t featured anywhere else – he’s already been busted down by as a plagiarist and fabricator of material, and as Howard Kurtz reports: he’s engaged in “lying, cheating and backstabbing,” is a former cocaine addict, served time for grand larceny, repeatedly tried to kill himself and has battled mental illness his whole life. [See Kurtz, Salon, NRO, and NewsMax, and DUmmie Funnies for coverage of Leopold’s past]

Leaving aside Leopold’s complete lack of credibility, his sudden believability probably hints more at hopefulness on the left than a new mastery of facts. Leopold has been hawking this same every few months since 2005. The story last appeared in April, when indictment was just “days away.”

Sure it’s possible Rove could be indicted; but Leopold inventing indictments doesn’t make it any more likely…
