    Karl Rove Was Fired Before...

    For leaking information to Robert Novak. Rove was fired by the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1980 for leaking something to Novak.

    "Sources close to the former president say Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush presidential campaign after he planted a negative story with columnist Robert Novak." ("Countdown with Keith Olbermann, MSNBC, Sept. 29, 2003, citing Ron Suskind, "Why Are These Men Laughing," Esquire, Jan. 2003).

    Yeah... I can find that one... but what about the one the movie spoke of... during the 1980 campaign... that would be 2 instances of the same thing.

    Here's a link to a review of the movie that talks about it...

    http://www.documentaryfilms.net/Reviews/BushsBrain/

    "Wilson tells the filmmakers he can’t prove that Rove was behind the leak, but he knows Rove was pushing the story. One of the many ironies in this film is the fact that Rove was fired by the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1980 for leaking something to Novak, so the two go back a long way. To top it off, Rove attends services at the same Episcopal church as the CIA operative he allegedly so casually exposed!"

    Found another tasty little story. From voxfux.com "Disinformation and Bush's Rise To Power"

    The brilliant Halloween Gang mechanics behind the Reagan/Bush victory in 1980 were immensely edifying to the younger operatives working in the campaign that year. One of them, Karl Rove, wound up with Republican candidate Bill Clemens' campaign for governor of Texas in 1986. According to The Washington POST, just hours before a debate between Clemens and Democrat incumbent Mark White, Karl Rove noisily announced that his office had been bugged. Rove was careful not to blame Gov. White, but slyly stated that "our political opposition would benefit" from eavesdropping on his conversations (through a bug "discovered" in a needlepoint GOP elephant hanging on Rove's office wall.) White's office retorted that Rove and his team obviously "planted" the story to "draw attention from the debate that evening." The POST also reported that "the FBI launched an investigation, but it sputtered to a halt a few weeks later when the head of the security firm that found the bug declined to take a polygraph test."

    I wonder if the movie got it wrong, or Esquire magazine got it wrong, or if both incidents happened.
