Gonzales under fire

— Arlen Specter, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee "said Sunday that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales's failure to step down was 'no doubt, bad for the Justice Department,'" the New York Times writes. Mr. Specter's comments … reflected a growing lack of support for Mr. Gonzales among key Republicans on Capitol Hill as he faces accusations that the dismissals of eight United States attorneys were politically motivated."
