Happy Birthday to Alberto Gonzalez

Happy Birthday to Alberto Gonzalez, born on August 4, 1955, in Houston, Texas. Gonzalez and his seven brothers and sisters grew up in a two-bedroom house without hot water or a telephone. Gonzalez graduated from Rice College and received his law degree from Harvard University. Gonzalez worked at a law firm in Texas, and began his meteoric political rise with President George W. Bush.  Bush appointed him as general counsel during Bush’s first term as governor, and later as White House Counsel when Bush was elected as US President.  In 2005, Gonzalez became the nation’s first Latinx US Attorney General.  Gonzalez’s public service as Attorney General included several controversies with Congress, and he resigned in 2007. He returned to practicing law in Texas.
