Taking the Fifth--it's the new black

Via TPM Muckraker comes this news:

Karl Rove’s former secretary, Susan Ralston, will plead the Fifth if she is forced to testify about White House dealings with Jack Abramoff, according to a memo released by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today.

Ralston gave a voluntary deposition to the committee on May 10, where she said if subpoenaed, she would invoke her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

Which puts Ralston in the same fashion league with Monica Goodling over at the Department of Justice, who got her own immunity deal last month.

Gotta wonder just how big a powder keg these people are sitting on.

Meanwhile, here's looking forward to the day when "the new black" becomes "the new orange" (jumpsuit).
