RoveYesterday, attempting to get to the bottom of the alleged politicization of the Department of Justice under the Bush Administration—and an investigation of Alabama Governor Don Siegelman (D) specifically—Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) issued a subpoena to former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove.

According to CNN, the subpoena had been authorized earlier but was only delivered yesterday after "The Architect" conveyed through his lawyer he would not appear voluntarily. Not surprisingly, the lawyer also stated Rove must honor White House orders not to testify. Read Conyers' cover letter for yourself here.
