This surely didn’t sit well with Bush and the usual suspects.

Mukasey Recognizes Contribution of Gay Justice Department Employees at DOJ Pride Awards Ceremony. From the BLT:

About 150 people gathered at Main Justice’s Great Hall today for the annual awards ceremony of a Department of Justice group representing gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and trans-gendered employees. For the first time in six years, DOJ Pride was allowed to use the hall.

Under Attorneys General John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales, the group had not been permitted to meet in the Great Hall or to use government computers to communicate with its members.

Kudos to Mukasey on this issue. He said at the ceremony:

“Because all Justice Department employees have the right to be proud of who they are and the work that they do here.”

Amen Mr. AG.
