Justice Comes to Alberto Gonzales


Not enough justice, mind you. Still, in tomorrow’s New York Times Magazine, Deborah Solomon has a satisfying interview with Bush’s former attorney general, who resigned in disgrace over the attorneys generals firing scandal. Upshot: Gonzales has had no law firm job offers, has no book publisher, hasn’t talked to Bush, who isn’t helping out with legal bills, and a considerable portion of Texas Tech’s faculty signed a letter protesting his appointment. Read the whole thing. It’ll make you feel somewhat better. (H/T @GregMitchell)

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
