Machiavelli's Shadow: The Rise and Fall of
Karl Rove
Book by Paul Alexander

Chapter 12 is titled “The United States versus Don
Siegelman”

Karl Rove has come to personify scorched earth political tactics and
merciless, win-at-any-cost trickery. His status as the so-called
architect behind Bush’s election victories has elevated him to a mythic
kingmaker in the national imagination. Not since Mark Hanna, special
assistant to President William McKinley, has someone not elected to
public office played such a vital role in the governance of our nation.

We know the myth, but who is the man? In Machiavelli's Shadow, the
full, unvarnished truth about the mastermind of the Bush
administration is revealed as swirling scandals and Karl Rove's
diminished power have freed people to speak candidly as never
before. Acclaimed author and veteran journalist Paul Alexander tracks
Rove's journey from consummate outsider to presidential consigliere,
conducting firsthand interviews with A-list sources who have never
gone on the record about Rove before now. The result is a gripping,
no-holds-barred account of the man whose insistence on politicizing
any area on which he has advised the president—from the war in Iraq
to domestic issues like Social Security, energy, the environment, and
hotly controversial judicial matters—has brought about his own fall
from grace and an escalating crisis within the government and the
nation.

Drawing on the author's extensive connections in the political arena
and delving into all areas of Rove's life—political, business,
psychological, and personal—this book stands as the definitive
portrait of one of the most fascinating figures ever to emerge on the
American political scene.
