The Associated Press is reporting that Monica Goodling, counsel to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, has submitted her resignation. Goodling's resignation letter does not provide any reason for her departure, but she was sufficiently implicated in problems over last year's prosecutor purge that she has refused to testify before Congress on the grounds that doing so could implicate her in criminal activity.
