Senate Prepares For A No-Confidence Vote On Gonzales

The time for Gonzo maybe getting closer.

WASHINGTON – The Senate moved Thursday to schedule a no-confidence vote on embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as new details surfaced suggesting that at least 30 federal prosecutors were targeted for firing, nearly one-third of the nation’s 93 U.S. attorneys.

The impending censure vote is aimed at pressuring Gonzales to resign and forcing the Bush administration to further explain the motives behind its strategy to replace U.S. attorneys.

The names, nearly four times the number the Justice Department has acknowledged, give congressional investigators new leads in their inquiry into whether politics improperly influenced the firings of at least eight U.S. attorneys.

The question is will Bush get rid of his loyal subject even after the vote?
