House Panel Rejects Rove Offer on Siegelman Case
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have rejected Karl Rove's offer to provide written responses to questions about the federal prosecution of former Democratic Gov. Don Siegelman.

In a letter to the former White House adviser's attorney, Committee Chairman John Conyers and several other Democrats said Rove's written responses would not allow for give-and-take questioning. They asked Rove to reconsider his refusal to testify in person and under oath, asking him to respond by May 21.

The committee has threatened to subpoena Rove about allegations that he pushed the Justice Department to prosecute Siegelman, who was convicted in 2006 on corruption charges and sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
