“It looks as if former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is landing on his feet,” Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Whispers column of U.S. News & World Report.
“The embattled Texan resigned after the Justice Department came under fire for axing nine U.S. attorneys. Now University of Florida’s student paper, the Alli- gator, reports that Gonzales will take home $40,000 for a campus speech next week.
“Clinton’s AG Janet Reno may not be happy: Whispers learns that she got $15,000 for a UF chat in 2005. But both are netting less than Jack Kevorkian, who will make a killing for a speech at the school next year: $50,000.”
