Should We Be Worried About This?
For two years, the assistant who answered Rove's phone was a woman who had previously worked for lobbyist Jack Abramoff, a close friend of Norquist's and a top DeLay fundraiser. One Republican lobbyist, who asked not to be named because DeLay and Rove have the power to ruin his livelihood, said the way Rove's office worked was this: "Susan took a message for Rove, and then called Grover to ask if she should put the caller through to Rove. If Grover didn't approve, your call didn't go through."That would be the Grover Norquist who advocates shrinking the government until it's "small enough for me to drown in the bathtub." That would also be the Grover Norquist who shared an office address with Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was indicted for "financial support to Hamas" and "financial support to fronts for al-Qaeda". And he controls access to "Bush's Brain". I find this rather alarming.
