finally, gonzales goes

Posted on August 27, 2007


What a great start to the week!

Gonazales, who has brought nothing but shame to the office of the Attorney-General, has finally bitten the bullet and resigned.

This, after countless calls to Congress for questions, especially over the firing of nine US attorneys, believed to have been relieved from their positions as they refused to toe the Republican party line to be more “loyal”.

“Alberto Gonzales was never the right man for this job. He lacked independence, he lacked judgment, and he lacked the spine to say no to Karl Rove,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told the Washington Post.

Gonzales was also threatened with impeachment attempts by congressional members.

Gonzales will be gone by September 17.

All the details of the to-ing and fro-ing here.
