It took a while, but Alberto Gonzales has a job again. Nearly two years after resigning as George Bush's attorney general, Gonzales has been hired by Texas Tech to teach a course this fall, reports the Austin American-Statesman. Gonzales will be a visiting professor in the political science department and will lecture on the executive branch of government. He also will help recruit minority students.

“Judge Gonzales brings a unique experience to our classroom," says a Texas Tech dean. "His career in law, government and public service will provide our political science students a rich perspective of the executive branch and issues and challenges facing our nation." Gonzales resigned in 2007 under a barrage of criticism, including speculation that he fired federal attorneys because of their political orientation. (Read more Alberto Gonzales stories.)
