Albert Gonzales Resigns
And the walls come tumblin' down. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has resigned, effective September 17th. The Justice Department will be issuing a statement this morning. Talking heads are speculating Secretary of Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff will be tapped to replace Gonzales. During his Senate testimony earlier this year, Gonzales repeatedly "did not recall" key portions of his involvement in the dismisall of nine U.S. Attorneys. He's also accused of lying to Congress about the National Security Agency's spying program.
