Yesterday, Whispers posted a story that said we may never know how much money Karl Rove made running political outside spending groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.

Well, today we do. It's nothing, Rove tells Whispers.

Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio reached out to Whispers to explain that Rove doesn't get paid for his work from either group.

"As is reported on all federal disclosure forms, and has been repeatedly reported in the media through official statements, Karl Rove receives no compensation whatsoever from either American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS or any of its vendors," Collegio wrote in an email. "In fact, Mr. Rove pays all of his own personal expenses associated with the groups."
