White House Power Point slides target 20 Democrats for 2008 defeat
House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) is seeking information about slides targeting 20 Democratic-controlled Congressional districts for the 2008 Election. In January, the White House sent J. Scott Jennings, an aide to Karl Rove, to present a slide show to a group of employees of the General Services Administration.
Waxman believes the presentation, as well as subsequent remarks made by GSA Director Lurita Alexis Doan, may have violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from using their positions for political purposes. Doan is alleged to have suggested that she could use GSA contracts to help Republican members of Congress hold their seats in the House.
