Schadenfreude, or It's About Time

Tom DeLay (R-Texas) indicted on a new charge of money laundering.

K12 Inc. today announced that William J. Bennett has resigned as an employee, and as Chairman and member of the company's Board of Directors, effective immediately. . . K12 Inc., an education company based in McLean, VA, is a leading provider of high quality curricula and learning programs.

The SEC is investigating whether Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist had any insider information when he unloaded shares of HCA Inc., a hospital chain his family helped found, just weeks before the company announced news that made its stock tank.

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, a central figure in the probe since its earliest days and the vice president's main counselor, discussed Plame with at least two reporters but testified that he never mentioned her name or her covert status at the CIA, according to lawyers in the case. His story is similar to that of Karl Rove, President Bush's top political adviser. Rove, who was not an initial focus of the investigation, testified that he, too, talked with two reporters about Plame but never supplied her name or CIA role.
