Former GOP operative Jill Simpson tells CBS that Karl Rove wanted her to get compromising pictures of Don Siegelman as part of an effort to discredit him during his 2002 bid for reelection as governor of Alabama.
"Karl Rove asked you to take pictures of Siegelman?" asks Pelley.
"Yes," replies Simpson.
"In a compromising, sexual position with one of his aides," clarifies Pelley.
"Yes, if I could," says Simpson.
Rove didn't speak to CBS, but has denied being part of any anti-Siegelman smear campaign.
You can watch this interview Sunday during "60 Minutes" (if you can tear yourselves away from the Oscars).
