Joe Wilson spoke at the National Press Club today and called on Bush to fire Karl Rove. Wilson “said Bush’s closest political advisor should pay for his alleged role in the drama which saw the identity of his wife, CIA spy Valerie Plame, leaked to the media.”
“I believe that as Americans we should all be appalled by this sort of behavior from the senior reaches of this administration,” said Wilson during an appearance at Washington’s National Press Club.
“I don’t believe that Mr Rove should be permitted to resign. I believe this is a firing offense,” he said.
“To be so cavalier in the handling in the secrets of this great nation really is an abuse of the public trust.”
Yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, said Rove needs to step down.
