Send Karl Rove to Jail

Petition: We call on the the House Judiciary Committee to cite Rove with contempt for
failing to comply with a Congressional subpoena. Since Rove regards the
law with such contempt, it's high time the law and Congress hold him in contempt
as well. We demand the HJC let Rove know he can't decide which subpoenas
he obeys and which he ignores.
This sounds like a dream, doesn't it? Well, it's not. We have a unique opportunity right now to send Karl Rove to jail, but only if we take immediate action.
All we have to do is pressure the 40 members of the House Judiciary Committee, make them hold Rove in contempt and send him to jail. We've never had such a direct opportunity to hold Rove accountable. No, this is not enough punishment for his years and years of crimes, but it's a huge start, and will send a very clear message to the entire Bush administration.
UPDATE: Don Siegelman just challenged McCain to compel Rove to testify.
