Rove’s Payback Begins

Well, that didn’t take long:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury has asked the U.S. inspector general’s office to investigate how a possibly classified document appeared on Sunday in a televised interview of ex-Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, a department spokesman said on Monday.

As you may know, O’Neill provided 19,000 documents to Suskind to help him write his book, some of which apparently appeared on the 60 Minutes interview.

I can’t help but think that Rove chuckled to himself, just a little, when O’Neill said “I’m an old guy, and I’m rich. And there’s nothing they can do to hurt me.”
