Washington - (Panic Press): The Justice Department has been ordered to sound out Florida Judge Larry Seidlin as a credible replacement for beleagured Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
"The numbers are stacking up against Gonzales, we hope he'll be gone by the end of the week," said a Capitol Hill source today as money continued to pour in on internet betting sites that Sedlin will be taking over.
Spread betting index Aintgottaprayer.com has cut the Florida judge's odds from 5/1 to 6/4 and made Gonzales 4/6FAV to face conspiracy to pervert charges by early next week.
Meanwhile fearsome Special Prosecutor Patrick FitzGerald is remaining Sphynx-like amid rumors Scooter Libby has complained to the Feds of being stalked by a lone, bald, sixty-something, bespectacled quail-shooting gunman on rampant target practise near the Libby residence.
