McHenry calls for president to oust Gonzales

At the Gaston County town hall Thursday night, Patrick McHenry called on President George W. Bush to remove Attorney General Alberto Gonzales from office.

According to long-time Democratic leader Betsy Wells, McHenry was asked by a resident what can be done to punish two leaders who disgraced their offices. The man referred to Duke prosecutor Mike Niphong and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. McHenry said that the Niphong case was a state matter. About Gonzales, McHenry said the President should have removed him, that he should not longer be the Attorney General.

Beth Sibley also contributed to a review of the entire meeting which will be posted later today.
