Karl Rove Ignored Subpoena, Refused to Show for the Congressional Hearing, and Illegally Left the Country

An other example of "law and order" for everyone else, except this administration. Think reports that:

When ThinkProgress contacted Rove’s lawyer, his office confirmed that Rove was out of the country “on trip scheduled long before the subpoena was sent.” Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) said Rove’s attorney “never mentioned” this trip to the committee. Rove’s bogus claims of executive privilege were rejected by the Committee as “not valid” by a 7-1 vote. The committee gave Rove five days to comply with the subpoena.
