Jill Simpson Is Our Republican of the Week.

Here is another of our weekly efforts to prove our bi-partisan bono fides by featuring a praiseworthy Republican.

Jill Simpson is a Republican operative in Alabama who has come forward to say Karl Rove asked her to try to prove the state’s Democratic governor was unfaithful to his wife in an effort to thwart the highly successful politician’s re-election.

Rove’s attempt to smear Don Siegelman was part of a Republican campaign to ruin him that finally succeeded in imprisoning him, according to operative , according to the official press release.

Simpson will be speaking to Scott Pelley in her first television interview, to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, Feb. 24 (7-8 p.m., ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
