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!
