Senator Frank Lautenberg has just sent President Bush a letter decrying Karl Rove’s negligence as the “point person for disaster coordination and recovery” in the White House.
Rove is departing Washington today to attend fundraising events in North Dakota while Hurricane Rita slams into Texas.
Bush has made clear that Karl Rove is his “point person” in heading up his team’s response to these hurricane onslaughts. . .but he will be off-site collecting dollars for the party rather than helping those without resources or wealth who may still be trapped in Rita’s path.
