The Day Scooter Died

Despite what this book's title might lead you to believe, Scooter Libby hasn't actually died. But he has been charged with obstruction of justice, two counts of perjury, and two counts of making a false statement, and if convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.25 million in fines. But his life isn't over, technically speaking. Just his job as Cheney's advisor, his political career, his status as a right-wing hero, and perhaps his sex life. Oh, and adding injury to insult, he recently broke his foot. But he's not dead yet. Not like the poor little puppy in this book, whose only crime was probably soiling the carpet...
