Friday, April 06, 2007


Monica Goodling, the U.S. Department of Justice official who recently said she'd take the Fifth Amendment rather than testify under oath to Congress, handed in her resignation on Friday.

CNN reports that Goodling resigned as counselor to Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez.

In her goodbye letter, Goodling wrote:
"I am hereby submit my resignation to the Office of the Attorney General, effective April 7, 2007. It has been an honor to have served at the Department of Justice for the past five years. May God bless you richly as you continue your service to America."
The Friday news dump -- a time-honored tradition of releasing bad news just as the weekend starts and people stop paying attention.

What a gal.

She should take some of those brownies Ashcroft was so partial to when she does her star turn before the Senate Judiciary committee.

Especially now that we know about this:

I was asking a few days ago what the 85 USA’s did to keep their jobs?

Well, we know what depths one of them was willing to plumb.
