Gonzales Forced to Beg for Money for His Legal Defense

This post, written by GottaLaff, originally appeared on Cliff Schecter's Brave New Films Blog

Poor Alberto Gonzales. He's gotten himself into so much hot water that he's felt it necessary to create a trust fund to help pay for his legal expenses. That scamp. Always into mischief.

If he did commit perjury, if he did he improperly tamper with a congressional witness, then he's a gen-u-ine stand out!
The establishment of a legal-defense fund for the nation's former chief law-enforcement officer illustrates the potential peril confronting Gonzales, one of a handful of attorneys general to face potential criminal charges for actions taken in office.
Forget about Paddy's frozen toes and my out-of-work, picketing writer. Gonzo needs your money NOW!
David Leitch, a Gonzales friend and general counsel at Ford Motor, wrote in an e-mail solicitation to potential contributors last month that Gonzales is "innocent of any wrongdoing" but does not have the means to pay for his legal defense after a career spent mostly in public service.
Tsk, tsk! Do you feel his pain? Then GIVE! Show your compassion!
