Politics Karl Rove’s Stepfather was Gay
According to this new book. Why am I not surprised?
In Chapter 9, “A Few Simple Questions: What’s in Karl’s Closet?,” the authors draw on interviews with gay acquaintances of Rove’s stepfather, Louis Rove, as well as an interview with a circumspect Karl Rove, to reveal that Louis was openly gay after getting divorced from Rove’s mother. The chapter jabs hard at Rove, pointing out that Louis Rove, who was clearly Rove’s primary father figure, died in Palm Springs just as “his son was in the midst of launching the antigay issues campaign that was to lead to the re-election of George W. Bush.”
