The Washington Post released an article today that detail the various scandals Attorney General Gonzales has been involved in over the past decade.

According to the article, back in 1996, Gonzales "intervened to prevent then-Gov. Bush from serving jury duty in a drunken driving case in Texas...by not serving jury duty, Bush was able to keep his own drunken driving conviction a secret for several more years." If Bush had served on the jury, according to an article on Raw Story, Bush would have been forced to reveal his drunken driving conviction.

In regards to President Bush's warrant-less wiretapping program, the Washington Post article outlines Gonzales' heavily disputed testimony involving the program, which had led four senators to request a special prosecutor's investigation, and his involvement in last year's dismissal of nine US Attorneys.

"It's obvious that Gonzales owes Bush his career," Schott said. "Part of his behavior comes from this gratitude and extreme loyalty to Bush.", according to the article.

One scandal that was not noted by this article, and has routinely been ignored by the mainstream media in general, was the sex scandal cover-up Attorney General Goznales was involved in during his days as part of general counsel in Texas under George W. Bush.

In an article released by Dr. Jerome Corsi of WorldNet Daily News back in March, Gonzales was accused of failing to prosecute members of the Texas Youth Commission "after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution's teenage boy inmates....among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties."

According to Corsi's article, " a criminal investigation was conducted in 2005 by Texas Ranger Brian Burzynski. The investigation revealed key employees at the West Texas State School in Pyote, Texas, were systematically abusing youth inmates in their custody....Burzynski presented his findings to the attorney general (Gonzales) in Texas, to the U.S. Attorney Sutton, and to the Department of Justice civil rights division. From all three, Burzynski received no interest in prosecuting the alleged sexual offenses."

In an article posted on Wired.com last week, "Gonzales, speaking to police and prosecutors in Illinois this week, called on them to get "extremely graphic" in discussing internet child porn to get the public's attention. According to this account, Gonzales repeatedly stressed the need to give the public more lurid accounts of what officers have seen."

These disturbing findings by Dr. Corsi and Wired Magazine detail an even more disturbing picture of an Attorney General already embroiled in controversy. Further, it is clear that the mainstream media has continued to ignore this issue and will continue to do so as long as Gonzales remains by Bush's side.
