Scandal Round Up

The Washington Post's Al Kamen points out that one-time Clinton administration advisor Dick Morris says President Clinton shoul not fire Karl Rove because Mr Rove never violated a law disclosing a CIA's identity.

Mr Kamen, in his In the Loop column, also points out why Bill Clinton fired Mr Morris:

"Morris, Loop Fans may recall, was canned by President Bill Clinton without even a hint of any criminal activity. Letting his escort service companion listen in on Clinton's telephone calls was not a crime. And alleged toe-sucking is hardly worthy of a grand jury."

Mr Kamen also points out that Richard Nixon fired aides before they were convicted in the Watergate scandal and Ronald Reagan fired aides before they were convicted in the Iran-Contra Affair. (WashPost)
