Military Recruiting Lead: Washington, D.C.
From Vanity Fair's December 2006 profile of senior Administration (White House) official Karl Rove:
We were in the midst of a conversation about the midterm elections, one that Rove had resisted for weeks, until suddenly, one Friday at summer's end, I was summoned to a leisurely Saturday breakfast at his home, the same three-story brick town house where he had held weekly strategy sessions for his staff during the 2004 presidential campaign. The menu was sliced tomatoes and eggs that Rove himself scrambled. The spicy venison sausage links had been rendered from a deer shot by his 17-year-old son, Andrew. The coffee was fresh French press, the sort of thing Rove might have mocked John Kerry for pouring. Score the first one for the N.R.A. and the other for France—in G.O.P. terms, a wash.
And here's our letter, published in February 2007 (not on-line):
Your article on Karl Rove mentioned that his 17-year-old son, Andrew, can hunt. I cannot help but wonder whether Rove has encouraged Andrew to consider volunteering for military service, since military recruiters are tracking and contacting other 17-year-olds. [Vanity Fair reporter] Todd Purdum should have asked Rove that question, no matter how uncomfortable it might have made his neighbor (Rove).
Important Note: It appears that Karl Rove's son Andrew is a minor, age 17, whose privacy we respect. That said, our question is quite legitimate for Karl Rove himself.
