Alberto Gonzales is headed to Florida on Monday to deliver remarks at the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Conference.
The visit comes during tough times for the attorney general. Senate Democrats are calling for a perjury investigation, claiming Gonzales has, ``at a minimum,'' provided ``half-truths and misleading statements'' in testimony to Congress, most recently
over secret surveillance.
Four Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are asking the solicitor general to appoint a special counsel to investigate.
The White House is defiantly standing behind Gonzales on the
Press Secretary Tony Snow has flatly denied there's any

Gonzales insisted that the president's secret wiretapping
program was not the topic of a hospital room dispute between
administration officials. Mueller says it was.
