Romney 'Bundler' Had Role in Outing Valerie Plame

Politico made the connection today, and here's good wrap by Philip Turner--who published my "So Wrong for So Long" book on Iraq and the media.  "According to information that came out at the Scooter Libby trial in 2007 ... [Robert] Novak sent a draft of his fateful column attacking Iraqi invasion critic Ambassador Joseph Wilson  and outing Wilson’s wife Plame as a CIA official, to [Richard]  Hohlt, who then sent on to the Bush White House. This is interesting on at least two counts." Follow link above for more.  Holdt is a D.C. lobbyist.  Romney, of course, said yesterday in his VFW speech that his White House would never "reveal classified material for political gain."
