    Karl Rove is alleged to have been DIRECTLY involved with a multitude of illegal acts. There is no such allegation about Meek. At worst it's somewhere between guilt by association or guilt by willful ignorance (such as, duh he should have known something was wrong).

      ..."During Rep. Meek’s tenure in the state Senate, he was employed by Wackenhut Corrections Corporation as a business development officer. Rep. Meek’s relationship with the company led to numerous conflicts of interest. For example, Rep. Meek failed to recuse himself from voting on bills that directly impacted Wackenhut’s bottom line. He was also a member of the Senate appropriations Subcommittee on Public Safety and Judiciary, partly in charge of doling out state funds, while corrections-giant Wackenhut had multi-million dollar business dealings with the state."
