Henry Writes a Dear Susan Letter
Paul Kiel at TPM Muckraker reports:
Much to the chagrin of the White House, House Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) wants to hear from Susan Ralston.Waxman has invited Ralston - Jack Abramoff's former personal assistant, who became Karl Rove's assistant in 2001 - to appear before the committee on Thursday, April 5, to answer questions about Abramoff's access to the White House.
The hearing will also be a good opportunity for Waxman to press for more details about White House employees' use of outside email accounts provided by the Republican National Committee. Ralston used such outside accounts when corresponding with Abramoff, even writing to him once, “I now have an RNC blackberry which you can use to e-mail me at any time. No security issues like my WH email.”
