The NY Times calls for the resignation of Alberto Gonzales.


  • Defending the firing of US Attorneys for political reasons
  • The abuse of the USA Patriot act
  • Defending the abrogation of the rights of the Geneva Convention
  • Abandoning its role as a champion of voting rights:
    ” It approved a Georgia photo-ID law that a federal judge later likened to a poll tax, a case in which Mr. Gonzales’s political team overrode the objections of the department’s professional staff…But it has managed to find the time to sue a group of black political leaders in Mississippi for discriminating against white voters. ”

“Mr. Gonzales symbolizes Mr. Bush’s disdain for the separation of powers, civil liberties and the rule of law.”
