VAWA creates false rape allegations (tags)

Under the Violence Against Women's Act (VAWA) the constitutional rights of men are destroyed. The presumption of innocence, a fundamental piece of American law, is disregarded. In the name of political correctness, thousands of innocent men are incarcerated indefinitely. A vengeful spouse, deranged lover, a jilted girlfriend, an attention seeking loser, or a mentally disturbed woman can have any person arrested on just her word. No evidence is needed, no questions are asked.

Karl Rove Getting Leaked On--By Grand Jury (tags)

President Bush now says he will fire for convictions, not mere leaks. The consensus of lawyers is that Karl Rove will be indicted in the Valerie Plame outing case -- and not for what you think. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald appears to have a slam-dunk case under Title 18, Sec. 641, USC (which is NOT about outing a covert agent) just as the DOJ did for leaker Jonathan Randel, who got a year in prison. Karl Rove was abandoned by both of his parents -- the man he called Dad left home, Rove found out "Dad" wasn't his father after all (his aunt and uncle "outed" this at the dinner table), and his mother committed suicide.
