New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who after eight years of service as attorney general was certainly the state’s most popular prosecutor since Thomas E. Dewey, has a few words to offer on Alberto Gonzales and the sad state of the Department of Justice:
“I think it is a blight upon the Department of Justice that Alberto Gonzales is still the attorney general,” Mr. Spitzer said in an interview last week.
“We are brought back to the days, the dark days of the Nixon era, where the tentacles of politics reach into the Department of Justice and threaten our core notions of what justice means,” he added.
