Statement on the Gonzales Resolution

Statement

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the Senate no-confidence vote on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

"The time we spend on the Senate floor debating issues is a precious commodity. I cannot think of a bigger waste of time than the Democratic resolution expressing no-confidence in the Attorney General.

"This resolution takes the country down a road we have never traveled before. If successful, it could start an endless journey of political sniping and sophomoric payback. The Congress is in low standing with the public for a reason. The Democratic leaderships decision to bring up matters such as this - an unprecedented political stunt - reinforces our low standing. For these reasons, I will vote against moving the resolution forward."
