Dan Eggen of the Washington Post tells of the showdown set for Wednesday - when the House Judiciary Committee will vote on whether Bolton and Miers should be held in contempt. (for background see here) But another aspect of this article also merits serious consideration. The article states that "Gonzales says allegations that some of his aides used political considerations in hiring career employees were 'troubling to hear,' but he said he was staying in his job to initiate reform."
Should Gonzales be held to the same standards that he holds CEOs of corporations? Is he a responsible corporate officer? And if he is, should he be held accountable for any wrongdoing that occurred under his administration? Where was the compliance program to protect against wrongdoing?
