POLITICS: Karl the Avenger

Rove personally intervenes to go after a spammer:

The White House political adviser and deputy chief of staff took time from his busy schedule early last year to personally track down a bothersome spammer who made the mistake of hitting subscribers to President Bush's campaign site, the Daily News has learned.

"His voice was chilling," McAllister recalled in an interview Friday. "He says, 'Look, I got a Web site here called georgewbush.com and I got 900 subscribers and every one of them is getting e-mail from you.' He said, 'You gotta stop this right here and now. You've got to leave my subscribers alone.'"

On Jan. 17, 2005, at 9:12 p.m., Rove e-mailed an assistant in the Bush campaign, B.J. Goergen: "Find where this company is headquartered," with the attached spam for Voicescape.

Subsequent e-mails and phone transcripts show that Rove contacted McAllister, president of Millenium, and at least three stock promoters involved in hyping the Voicescape and Millenium stocks.

Good for him.

This is something we should all be able to agree on. Spammers should have their @$$es kicked. I'm not sure we need any additional legislation just more beatings for spammers.
