Arkansas' Rove Disciple

In Arkansas, the true political intent of the firing of nine U.S. Attorneys in 2006 can vividly be seen. In December of 2006, the Rove Republican Racket replaced U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins with the illustrious Tim Griffin.

And who is Mr. Griffin? None other than a Karl Rove disciple. He served in 2005 and 2006 in the Bush White House as Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director in the Office of Political Affairs. In other words, he was Karl Rove's assistant!

The Arkansas Times posted this tidbit last week

Republicans go about these things very differently. A couple of years ago, when the Bush administration fired a gang of Republican U.S. attorneys considered insufficiently partisan, Bush and Karl Rove replaced them with people distinguished by their eagerness to do dirty work for the party. In Little Rock, Bud Cummins had to make way for Tim Griffin, a former Republican National Committee operative who gained fame, of a sort, in a Republican effort to keep blacks and Hispanics from voting.
