Re: Ag as Ag

Mark and Ramesh’s point about the scuffing Al Gonzales will endure as AG

is especially well taken this year. As we’ve been pointing out for a

while now, the most important provisions of the Patriot Act are due to

sunset on December 31, 2005. The first priority for any new AG has to

be getting them extended in the beginning of Congress’s next term. The

civil liberties lobby is gearing up for the mother of all battles, and

the already existing congressional opposition to Patriot is not limited

to Democrats. This will not be an easy year.
