South Texas county indicts Cheney, Gonzales

20 November 2008

A grand jury in southern Texas’ Willacy County has indicted US Vice President Dick Cheney and former US attorney general Alberto Gonzales on state charges of misconduct involving private prisons. The indictment, brought by District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra, also names several local officials.

The indictment alleges conflict of interest stemming from an $85 million investment by Cheney in the Vanguard Group, a company that holds shares in private companies running federal detention centers, noting that Cheney had influence over the federal contracts awarded to the prison companies held by the Vanguard Group. The indictment also names Cheney as responsible for “at least misdemeanor assaults” at these prisons. The indictment accuses Gonzales of intervening, as US Attorney General in 2006, to stop an investigation into abuses at private prisons.

    two time Bush Jr voter. Yet, he has came to understand the gross
    ineptitude and immorality that defines the administration of George W.

    forward against Bush, in defense of their country, deserve special

    Bush History: Long, Long-Time Bush Insider Admits Bush Involved in
    Deceiving Public 11/21

    He’s served Bush since his days as Texas governor, and followed him to
    D.C. Yet this long, long-time Bush insider couldn’t keep quiet about
    the con job his friend and president played on the American people. He
    stepped forward and told the truth. Also on this date, Bush’s gift to

    Bush History: Dick Cheney Speech Highlights the Failures of Bush Administration 11/24

    Vice President Dick Cheney makes a speech on this date that highlights
    the failures of the Bush administration, not that this is what he had
    intended. He starts out saying, for example, that “The President was
    determined to solve problems, not simply pass them on to future
