Sen. Wayne Allard (R-CO) is “weighing” whether to call for Alberto Gonzales to resign “after reports that a former interim U.S. attorney for Colorado — who had Allard’s backing — was targeted for dismissal in early 2006. ‘Clearly these revelations are cause for concern,’ Allard’s chief of staff, Sean Conway, told The Associated Press Friday. … ‘(Allard is) watching things carefully and taking them all in…in terms of the attorney general’s future.'” Let us know how that goes.
UPDATE: Sen. Ken Salazar (D-CO) makes up his mind. “Salazar today called for the resignation of his friend, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, whose leadership he said had tarnished the Department of Justice. ‘I arrive at the decision with a heavy heart and disappointment,’ said Salazar.”
