Karl Rove's WIFE Treasurer for pro-#TXLEGE Prop. 7 PAC


"Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished,
But he who gathers by labor will increase."
Proverbs 13:11

We've already discussed our ambivalence to Prop. 7, but this is an interesting development.

Karen Rove is a local lobbyist and is also the wife of one Karl Rove:

Love, etc.: Karl Rove weds Karen Johnson

Bottom Line: Prop. 7 might still be the least bad way to fund necessary transportation upgrades, but Karl Rove's wife working for one of the pro-PAC's is a detail that shouldn't be overlooked.
