"In an interview yesterday, Wilson said that once the criminal questions are settled, he and his wife may file a civil lawsuit against Bush, Cheney and others seeking damages for the alleged harm done to Plame's career.
If they do so, the current state of the law makes it likely that the suit will be allowed to proceed -- and Bush and Cheney will face questioning under oath -- while they are in office. The reason for that is a unanimous 1997 U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling that Paula Jones' sexual harassment suit against then-President Bill Clinton could go forward immediately, a decision that was hailed by conservatives at the time."
[TalkLeft | October 17, 2005]
Twas the night before Fitzmas and all through the blogs,
Not a creature was stirring, not even the firedogs.
The indictments were sealed at the courthouse with care
In hopes that Karl Rove soon would be there.
Lefty bloggers were snuggled all safe in their beds
While visions of frog-marches danced in their heads.
