Karl Rove to testify about Siegelman case

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Former White House adviser Karl Rove has agreed to answers questions about the prosecution of ex-Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

Rove and members of the House Judiciary Committee reached an agreement that was announced Wednesday evening.

The panel also is investigating the removal of nine former U.S. attorneys by the Bush White House.

Rove had refused to appear before the panel, contending that presidential advisers cannot be compelled to testify before Congress.

The committee is trying to determine whether politics was a factor in the prosecution of Siegelman, a Democrat.

The former governor was convicted in 2006 in a government corruption case.
