Did Hoeven sell us out?

In June, the Canadians told us that the White House's "political muscle" was keeping the Devils Lake outlet from being completed. Canadian Environmental Minister Stephanie Dion maintained Thursday the White House's political muscle is keeping the talks going. "We have assurances that as long as we have this process with the council from the White House, the outlet will not be opened." (Winnipeg Free Press, 6/17/05)

As of July 1, the Bush Administration still failed to take a position. With all the rain, the lake's water level is on the rise again.

Hoeven met with Rove last month to discuss Devils Lake. Did he sell us out for their support for his Senate bid?
