This blonde bimbo is former Justice Department liason Monica Goodling, who testified in front of the Senate’s Judicial Committee today, after being granted immunity for her testimony. Looks like Goodling is yet another totally incompetent and unqualified appointment in the Bush administration who was mainly chosen for her political loyalty.
She had a good alibi though… even though she may have broken the law, “I believe I crossed the line, but I didn’t mean to”.
She’s a graduate of Jerry Falwell’s law school at “Liberty University”, where I guess they don’t teach their law students that ignorance is not an alibi in court.
[quote]As for her own role in Justice Department hirings and firings, she said, “I do acknowledge that I may have gone too far in asking political questions of applicants for career positions, and I may have taken inappropriate political considerations into account on some occasions, and I regret those mistakes.”
When the hearing got under way, there were suggestions that Ms. Goodling, who is 33, may have acted illegally, rather than just improperly. In any event, the grant of immunity under which she testified protected her from self-incrimination, so long as she told the truth, which she swore to do.[/quote]
This admission of illegality should put to rest that this is simply a matter of Bush’s discretion in hiring and firing. And Goodling contradicted previous witnesses, so this scandal will continue to unfold.
