Ambassador Joe Wilson, others to protest KKKarl Rove in Seattle tomorrow
Washington State Democrats are taking to the streets and sponsoring a “Reject Rove Rally” when former Bush strategist Karl Rove speaks Tuesday night to state Republicans’ fall dinner.
The rally outside the Westin in Bellevue will feature former Ambassador Joe Wilson, a friend of Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Rep. Jay Inslee, D-Wash.
It was Wilson, at an Inslee sponsored Town Hall speech, who said he wanted to see Rove “frog-marched out of the White House.” He blamed Rove for the “outing” via columnist Robert Novak that Wilson’s wife Valerie Plame was a CIA operative.
Inslee has been heard on the Rove visit. “I hope you’re gonna give him a hot reception,” the congressman told a fundraising reception two weeks ago.
Inslee said his goal in running for governor was to not “let Karl Rove govern the state of Washington.” Inslee has also talked about not letting the Tea Party “take over” Washington, and said recently: “I think it is time we have somebody else running the state of Washington than Tim Eyman.”
