Letter to the Editor

The Signal’s front-page article on Karl Rove failed to mention that his principal role in the presidential campaign has been to head an entity called Crossroads GPS, which pretends to be a nonprofit public interest group, but which is in fact a conduit though which unidentified millionaires can bankroll attack ads aimed at President Obama.  If you think that big money should control national politics, Rove is your guy.

The Signal article also failed to mention the fee paid to Rove.  He likely collected a five-figure sum.  My guess is that many College students would not be happy to know that their money was being spent in this manner.
