Contempt Proceedings: Keeping Count

We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

Harriet Miers isn't the only one who may suffer contempt of Congress proceedings. Paul Kiel at TPM Muckraker reports that Josh Bolton, White House Chief of Staff, is the individual to whom a subpoena was issued demanding documents related to the prosecutor purge. Contempt for failure to comply with the subpoena would be his burden to bear. And Judiciary Chairman Conyers has stated that the committee may conduct contempt proceedings against RNC Chairman Robert Duncan, for refusing to comply with a subpoena for documents regarding White House use of RNC email accounts. And ex-Rove aide Sara Taylor isn't off the hook yet either.

Become a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Many of you expressed interest in magazine subscriptions, gift subscriptions, tote bags, events and books —and we’ve added all of those. Some of you said that cost was an issue, so we’ve kept our starting tier at just $5 a month—less than 17 cents a day.

Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with unique rewards at each level, for you to choose from. Check out the new Sustainer program.
