Pay-to-Play: Karl Rove Taking Lead on George W. Bush Presidential Library

Rove is spearheading the $500 million "partisan institute and think tank."

Bush crony Stephen Payne was caught on tape offering access to Dick Cheney and Condoleeza Rice in exchange for donations to the George W. Bush Presidential Library.



True to the president's legacy, the Bush Library will be a $500 million partisan institute housed by Southern Methodist University and administered with tax dollars, but accountable only to the library foundation.

The library is to be the Mother of All Think Tanks. It will reward the truly loyal Bushies with cushy jobs burnishing the legacy of George W. Bush.



Readers will not be shocked to learn that the project is being spearheaded by none other than Karl Rove.
