Abu Gonzales is Toast

McClatchy Newspapers:
The White House began floating the names of possible replacements for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Monday as the Justice Department released more internal documents related to the firings of eight U.S. attorneys last year.

One prominent Republican, who earlier had predicted that Gonzales would survive the controversy, said he expected both Gonzales and Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty to resign soon. Another well-connected Republican said that White House officials have launched an aggressive search for Gonzales' replacement, though Bush hadn't decided whether to ask for his resignation.

Support for Gonzales appeared to be collapsing under the weight of questions about his truthfulness and his management ability.
It should not end here. As usual, the Bush Administration is looking for fall guys. It started with Gonzales's Chief of Staff, Kyle Sampson; but that didn't work. Now, they're going for Gonzales; but make no mistake: this scandal leads right into the White House.
