Schumer Calls for Gonzalez Resignation
Senator Schumer is calling for Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez to step down based on his political firings of U.S. Attorneys and the FBI's misuse of the Patriot Act. Gonzalez is a complete hack and an embarrasment to Republicans, never mind the country. He has argued that habeas corpus is not a fundamental right, when in fact habeas corpus is the only right mentioned in the body of the constitution. He may or may not be right to deny the use of U.S. courts to detainees in Gitmo, but the way to do that is not to deny to everyone one of our most fundamental of rights. I certainly won't shed a tear when he's gone.
