rove again plays tattletale, summer m. back on punishment
for the first time in 10 years, your favorite blogger summer m. is on punishment. and she claims to have karl rove to blame. it seems that the bush advisor "leaked" the information that it was summer m. who broke her mother's vase back in 1991. "he's a fucking snitch ass bitch," summer m. was overheard saying after being scolded by her mother via cell phone yesterday. "when i get done with him, he's gonna need more than hair plugs. it's on, nigga, it's on."
according to reports, summer m. allegedly broke the vase that stood by the fireplace in the family room during a wrestling match with her younger brother, david. though much of the evidence pointed towards human error, a then 11 year old summer m. was able to coerce her brother into backing up her story that it was the dog chasing her shadow that broke the vase. though they didn't have a dog at the time, summer m.'s complicated lie that it was the neighbor's dog over for a visit proved a dubious, but plausible excuse, as she was supposed to be dogsitting for the neighbors off rving out west. thus, there was no one but the young and still scrawny 7 year old david to back up the lie.
14 years later, summer m. thought she was free as a bird from being charged with that offense. until mr. rove let it slip that he knew who the "real culprit" was. mr. rove, of course, denies any wrongdoing. his spokesperson claims that mr. rove never revealed the name of the "real culprit" but simply suggested to summer m.'s mother, brenda c. that "her eldest daughter" was to blame for the incident.
once she received the news, brenda c. contacted her now 25 year old daughter on her cell phone. "when i found out, all i could say was, 'hell to the naw.' i told her [summer m.] back in '91 i'd get to the bottom of this, and now she knows i was serious," brenda c. said during a phone interview. "there's no statute of limitations in my house. she might be grown, but she's still my child. so i put her on punishment."
though summer m. refused to comment, she confirms that her punishment includes yard work, no "start a rumor mondays..." for the next three weeks, and a stint in ex-gay camp. karl rove's response is rumored to have simply been, "i've already said too much."
