Former US Attorney Wary of Gonzales's New Powers

Jason Leopold reports for Truthout: "Paul Charlton, the former US attorney for Arizona who was fired last year for refusing Justice Department orders to seek the death penalty in a drug-related murder case, said on Tuesday that a new law authorizing Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to fast track executions in various states is an ill-conceived plan because that gives power to an official who has little regard for capital punishment cases. 'In my own personal experience with the AG, and having watched his testimony regarding my dealings with him, I know that the AG reflects little on the issue of the death penalty,' Charlton said in an interview on Tuesday. 'What gives me to pause is not the need for the law, but that the individual who will be deciding if the states merit such a change will be the Attorney General.'
