Gonzalez: mistakes were made on firings of US attorneys (but it was Harriet’s fault!)

According to an article in today’s NYT, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez “admitted” that mistakes were made on the political firings of 8 US attorneys. Senators Charles Schumer and Dianne Feinstein have again called for Gonzalez to step down (see video below). It’s now clear that this issue was not a low-level administrative mistake. The House Judiciary Committee has a list of documents regarding the Attorney firings. One of the most bizarre things to emerge was that former Whitehouse Counsel Harriet Miers originally wanted to fire all 93 attorneys. The AP has more (via Huffington Post).
