Alberto Gonzales lands a teaching position at Texas Tech.

Life has been tough for Alberto Gonzales since he stepped down as President Bush’s attorney general. He was, for a while, “unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster.” Gonzales blamed his bad luck on the “rough economy.” Last June he was finally able to get hired “to provide assistance to a special master on a patent case.” The Austin-American Statesman now reports that Gonzales has also “lined up a fall-semester teaching spot at Texas Tech University.” He will be working in the political science department on a “‘special topics’ course on contemporary issues in the executive branch.” (HT: Wonkette)
