Late Friday -- well, afternoon, but too late to be a package in the evening news -- Karl Rove's administrative assistant, Susan Ralston resigned. That's her in the picture with the President.
Before working for Karl Rove, she worked for disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Her resignation is linked to that scandal.
The White House has repeatedly said that there were very few contacts between Mr Abramoff's lobby firm and people in the White House. Turns out there were more than a hundred contacts with Ms Ralston.
