In anticipation of the release of his memoir, Courage and Consequence, Karl Rove opened up about his political and personal life to Matt Lauer this morning on the Today show
Rove descrined his family as adoring and kind despite never telling him he was adopted (his aunt “let fly” the fact over dinner once when he was 19). !
He had thought that Louis Rove was his father, but he then at 19, discovered that the man he believed to be his father was actually his mother’s second husband and had adopted Karl. The timing of the couple’s divorce coincides with the time when it was said that Louis Rove was gay.
But Rove says: “I don’t know whether my [step] father was, at the end of his life, gay or not. I just don’t. I don’t think so, but I don’t know.”
Rove denied anything to do with the dirty campaining against John Mccain that suggested his daughter who was adopted from Begladesh, was an illegitame interracial child.
