Texas Tech Hires Unhireable Alberto Gonzales

Gonzales, who has been out of a job since he quit under pressure as Bush’s Attorney General, will start work August 1. His job? In addition to teaching one course on the executive branch (parents, warn your children), he will be doing, er, affirmative action?

Gonzales will join the Texas Tech University System to assist both Texas Tech University and Angelo State University (in San Angelo) with recruiting and retaining first generation and under-represented students.

The university said he will work with Texas Tech’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement in the planning of a first generation and minority student leadership training and development program.

Yep, that sounds like work for a former Attorney General of the United States to me. But then, Gonzales has always been the beneficiary of his own version of affirmative action. W. Gardner Selby broke the story for the Austin American Statesman, apparently to Tech’s surprise and dismay. (They thought they were going to keep it a secret?)
