Vice president, former AG, state senator indicted

November 18, 2008

gonzoindictOkay this is a shocker.  I knew it would not be a bad thing to prosecute VP Cheney and AG Gonzales; but, I figured President Obama could not and would not be bogged down with the effort.  His plate is already full and this would not encourage bipartisan participation.  But that did not stop Texas.

A South Texas grand jury has indicted Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County’s federal detention centers.

The indictment criticizes Cheney’s investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and “at least misdemeanor assaults” on detainees by working through the prison companies.

Gonzales is accused of using his position while in office to stop an investigation into abuses at the federal detention centers.

Who knew.  Read the rest of the article here.

Enough said, maybe.
