Bye ,Rove! [got indictment?]

I got this alert from my subscription. I flipped through Firedoglake, TPM and Atrios and didn't see it confirmed. Rove will be indicted. Hope its true...gawd do we need some fresh air in this country. This news is not my doing and I generally have a low opinon of spectators, especially when the sport is politics. But this is first down on the 50 yd line for my team so I am cheering.

Monday AM UPDATE: Shakespeare's Stister got it from TO on Saturday but by Sunday it was NOT in all the papers. Guess, we'll see. Jason Leopold has a good reputation but others report he was hoaxed and the rest of the buzz is just our pent up hopes Rove would get his due. Now don't you wish you had sent a little cash to It's wait-and-see for everybody else. New York Sun transcribes a Rove spokesperson: "The story is a complete fabrication". News people all want a scoop but without the contacts Leopold claims, are cautiously tempering their language.

Monday PM Update: as of 16:44EST, google news only finds saying definitely:
During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 business hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning.
