Rove: Revenge of the Bureaucrats?

If today's LA Times story is right, Karl Rove won't have much time to brood over his run-in with Sheryl Crow.

A little-known federal investigative unit, the Office of Special Counsel, is preparing to look into the kind of misuse of power that is Rove-rampant in this White House, including the firing of at least one of the U.S. Attorneys.

Although the Office is headed by a political appointee, it is apparently staffed by the kind of bureaucracy that would resent Rove's tampering with the Hatch Act, among other activities.

"We will take the evidence where it leads us," Scott J. Bloch, the head of the Office has said. "We will not leave any stone unturned."

Who knows what they will find slithering under the rocks?
