Paul McNulty

The second-in-command in the Department of Justice, Paul McNulty, has just announced that he will resign this summer. The Washington Post reports this afternoon that:
McNulty announced his plans to leave in a letter to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, citing the financial pressures of having children entering their college years, one official said.
In a press release from the Department, Attorney General Albert Gonzales stated that "The Department of Justice will be losing a dynamic and thoughtful leader with the departure of Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty."

We can only hope that Gonzales will follow McNulty's lead and that the President will bring in a well-respected and experienced person to restore confidence in the Justice Department. I would recommend Solicitor General Paul Clement as a replacement for Gonzales.
