Alberto Gonzales’s Resignation Demanded by Democratic Senators

This is an interesting little political soap opera. Eight U.S. attorneys have been fired by the Bush administration, and the reasons are not entirely clear. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is taking responsibility for the “incomplete” reason given to Congress for the terminations but admits that he was not fully aware of what was going on.

Meanwhile, Senate Democrats — always eager to create a scandal where none exists — are calling for Gonzales to resign for — according to Ted Kennedy — his “lack of candor with Congress and disdain for the rule of law and our constitutional system.”
