Karl Rove likes to compare himself with Mark Hanna, the powerful industrialist and senator in the waning nineteenth century who is often credited with the transformation of American political campaigns. Hanna showed that money could be a powerful tool to sculpt the nation's political course. He raised $3.5 million for the 1896 campaign of his friend, William McKinleyup to that point an unimagined sumand he brought in a campaign staff of 1,400, crafted leaflets, did the first direct mailings, devised the notion of surrogate speakers, and refined the notion of political messaging....

The House Judiciary Committee has threatened to subpoena former White House adviser Karl Rove if he does not agree by May 12 to testify about former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman's corruption case.

In a letter to Rove's attorney Thursday, committee lawmakers called it "completely unacceptable" that the former Republican White House aide has so far declined the committee's request for sworn testimony even as he discusses the matter publicly through the media.

Since last year, Democrats on the committee have been investigating whether Rove and other Republicans influenced Siegelman's prosecution on bribery and other charges. Siegelman, a Democrat, was convicted in 2006 and sentenced to more than seven years in prison last year.

Democrats on committee threaten to subpoena Karl Rove about former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman's prosecution

"We recognize the committee's legitimate interest in putting to rest the baseless and unsubstantiated charges that have been made by Governor Siegelman and others about
his prosecution," wrote Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney. Luskin proposed that the interview with committee staff not be transcribed or under oath.
