What Goes Around Comes Around
Tom Raum for AP observes a familiar pattern in Alberto Gonzales' current struggle, his case simply being the latest of a high-profile government official getting caught up in what likely will be a career-ending scandal. In the course of referring to the departed officials from past presidential administrations, Raum recalls a noteworthy detail:
The first President Bush sacked chief of staff, John H. Sununu after congressional complaints of arrogance and misuse of a government plane. The elder Bush had his oldest son _ the current president _ give Sununu the nudge when the former New Hampshire governor didn't seem to be getting the message.Then, a bit further on in the article, Raum notes:
More lawmakers are calling for Gonzales' resignation, including Sen. John E. Sununu, R-N.H., the son of the chief of staff dismissed by Bush's father.
