Gonzales Uses Interim Appointments Against Congressional Wishes

Both houses of Congress passed a bill that has been sitting on Bush's desk since June 4th that would eliminate the ability of the Attorney General to make interim appointments to the U.S. Attorney positions. While it awaits the president's signature, Gonzales is going ahead an making appointments.

The bill is not yet the law of the land, but it will be when the president signs it or Congress overrides his veto. Gonzales has elected to make an interim appointment while the bill awaits Bush's signature.

As if Gonzales were not in enough trouble, now he tries this stunt. I think it's time for an impeachment of the Attorney General.
