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."
