Lubbock's controversial Gonzales to publish memoirs

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  He is quite possibly Lubbock's most controversial national figure.  Former Attorney General, turned Texas Tech professor, Alberto Gonzales will write a memoir about his days in Washington D.C.  That's according to an article that appeared over the weekend on law.com. 

The article quotes Gonzales as saying he's about 60% done and will devote himself to getting it finished this summer.  And yes, he will open up and talk about controversial issues.  Gonzales is credited or blamed, depending on who you ask, for the U.S. policy on interrogation of suspected terrorists.  Some called it torture. 

Gonzales declined a chance to gloat when the Obama administration left Gonzales' work largely in tact after the transition from former President George W. Bush to current President Barrack Obama.  As for Gonzales' future with Texas Tech, law.com says the two sides are negotiating terms, but Texas Tech fully expects to have him on board for the 2010/2011 academic year.
