Morning, Alley folks. Here's what we're reading:

It's officially confirmed: a former Democratic committee chairman overrode his own subpoena to exclude his VIP loan from an investigation into Countrywide.

A controversial pro-Obama super PAC ad tying Mitt Romney to a woman's death from cancer aired in Ohio, and apparently "station error" is to blame, reports ABC News. Talk about "my bad."

And former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon won Tuesday night's Connecticut Republican Senate primary, after outspending her opponent 12 to 1. But who won't be backing her run against Democratic candidate Chris Murphy? Former WWE wrestler Brian Jossie, who says he was fired for a pro-Linda tweet.
