Let's not forget that Rove stored White House documents on a third-party RNC server, which is essentially illegal for the following reasons:

1) A government official using government resources for political purposes, under the Hatch Act of 1929.

2) Not preserving presidential records for eventual archival, as stated by the Presidential Records Act of 1978.

That should do it for now; Feel free to ask for more of Rove's nefarious practices.
