In the face of the news that one of the top aides in the Justice Department, Kyle Sampson, has resigned due to his involvement in the US Attorney scandal, Senators Charles Schumer and Dianne Feinstein called a press conference pulling together all the corruption and deceptions and called again for Gonzales's resignation:

On Capitol Hill, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., who is leading a Senate investigation of the firings, called for the second time in three days for Gonzales to step down. He said Sampson's resignation didn't take the heat off Gonzales.

"In fact, it raises the temperature," Schumer said. Alluding to the recent conviction of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby in the CIA leak case, Schumer said: "Kyle Sampson will not become the next Scooter Libby, the next fall guy."

People for the American Way has a petition you can sign demanding Gonzales's resignation.
