Justice Disintegrates

The ongoing collapse of the U.S. Justice Department's upper echelons continued today, with the resignation of the head of the Civil Rights Division. Unlike many of the other resignations, this Assistant Attorney General (political appointee) had nothing to do with either the questionable testimony that Attorney General Gonzales has given to Congress or efforts by Gonzales to advance a political agenda overtly hostile to individual rights. As it stands, the Justice Department has vacancies in its #2 and #3 positions, and the heads of several of its subject matter divisions are either gone or on their way out.
