THIS IS A COPY OF AN EMAIL SENT OUT BY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. MY COMMENTS ARE IN RED ITALICS.
George Bush's right-hand man at the Justice Department, Alberto Gonzales, just resigned.
When the US Attorney scandal first broke in March, I told you that this scandal could be George Bush's Watergate. We're still trying to learn just what George Bush, Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales knew about the political purge of eight US Attorneys -- and when they knew it.
SCANDAL???? What scandal? The US Attorneys are appointed by the President and serve at his pleasure and can be legally dismissed for any reason whatsoever. President Clinton dismissed 93 of them when he took office. If dismissing them is a scandal were not Clinton's actions a scandal 1500% greater than when President Bush dismissed 8 of them?
But even though Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales are gone, the investigation must continue. The problems at the Justice Department -- using federal prosecutors to smear Democratic opponents and suppress Democratic votes -- haven't stopped.
Make a contribution to the Democratic Party, and help us send a message -- that we're not going to stop until our questions have been answered:
President Bush's White House appears to be falling apart -- but more work still needs to be done.
MORE WORK? MORE INVESTIGATIONS? Since they took office the Democrat Congress has accomplished next to NOTHING (except rename some Post Office buildings). Remember the "October Surprise" of years ago when the Democrats said they needed to investigate the Republicans, "... because there is no evidence of any wrongdoing." All this sound like the same thing all over again.
Alberto Gonzales, Karl Rove, George Bush, and their Republican cronies still haven't admitted any of their failures. The Attorney General scandal. Hurricane Katrina. The Iraq War. These problems won't get fixed by resignations.
Please support our work, and send a message to the Bush administration -- this doesn't stop with a resignation. It isn't over yet.

SUB-PRIME MORTGAGES - Who should know more about whether making a sub-prime mortgage loan was risky? The lender or the borrower? Obviously the answer is the lender. If the loan was risky and they went ahead and made it anyway should the American taxpayer then bail out the mortgage company if the loan fails. That's the idea now being floated in Congress by the liberals.
