Senate considering Gonzales ‘no confidence’ vote.

"Senate considering Gonzales ‘no confidence’ vote."

“Senate Democratic leaders are seriously considering bringing a resolution to the floor expressing no confidence in Gonzales,” Roll Call reports. “‘I don’t think [Gonzales] can survive, no matter what the president says,’ said the source. The vote would be nonbinding and have no substantive impact, but it would force all Republican Senators into the politically uncomfortable position of saying publicly whether they continue to support Gonzales in the wake of the scandal surrounding the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.”
