Jail time for Gonzo?

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2007 at 5:56 AM

Turns out Alberto resigned in the midst of a big-time probe of whether he lied to Congress and inappropriately injected politics into Justice Department jobs. Inspector General Glenn Fine is asking questions of job applicants that suggest he's onto something:

In the questionnaires, Fine asks applicants whether they were quizzed by political appointees about their party affiliation, favorite politicians and judges, voting history, campaign contributions, and views on the death penalty and terrorism, according to a copy of the Aug. 24 questionnaire obtained by The Washington Post. Recipients are also asked to say whether White House aides participated in the interviews and to confirm if they were asked "what kind of conservative you were (law and order; social; fiscal)."
