Alberto Gonzales, arguably the worst Attorney General in U.S. history, is signed off yesterday after a scandal-plagued three years.
As it turns out, we’re ready to see him go, and Gonzales is ready to walk away.
After nine months of noisy controversy over his troubled tenure, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales is leaving office quietly today with a low-key farewell address to Justice Department employees in Washington.
“This is a quiet ending to a sad chapter at the Department of Justice,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who was the first lawmaker to call for Gonzales’s resignation earlier this year.
That’s true, but his departure is an uplifting coda, isn’t it?
