Former Bush aid Karl Rove accuses Obama of being a spammer

Former George W. Bush aide Karl Rove, in an argumentative appearance with Obama adviser David Plouffe on ABC’s “This Week,”  accused the White House of sending unsolicited e-mails to federal employees in violation of SPAM laws.

He stated “We do know that the White House sent out unsolicited e-mails to federal employees asking them to contact their legislators about this bill,” Rove said. “I think that’s not only a violation of the CAN-SPAM Act on e-mails, I think it’s a violation, more importantly, of the anti-lobbying statutes.”
