And not a moment too late.
WACO, Tex., Aug. 27 â€” Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, whose tenure has been marred by controversy and accusations of perjury before Congress, has resigned. A senior administration official said he would announce the decision later this morning in Washington.
Mr. Gonzales, who had rebuffed calls for his resignation, submitted his to President Bush by telephone on Friday, the official said. His decision was not immediately announced, the official added, until after the president invited him and his wife to lunch at his ranch near here.
Mr. Bush has not yet chosen a replacement but will not leave the position open long, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the resignation had not yet been made public.
I think somewhere I had seen Chertoff mentioned as a guy who could be top cop.
CNN’s Web site reported that President Bush is likely to nominate Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to serve as the next attorney general.
George…my advice? Find somebody new.
