"DOJ Fridays"
from's Legal Tube

DOJ Fridays are the days when Justice Department officials announce that they need to spend more time with their families.

Joining the ClubEdit

Former (or soon-to-be-former) members of the Justice Department who announce their resignations on a DOJ Friday are initiated into a very selective fellowship known as the "TGIDOJF Club".

Members of this elite group include

  • Rachel Brand, Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy, resigned Friday June 29, 2007.
  • William Mercer, former Acting Associate Attorney General, resigned Friday June 22, 2007.
  • Michael Elston, former Chief of Staff to former Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty, resigned Friday June 18, 2007.
  • Monica Goodling, former Director of Public Affairs for the Department of Justice, took an "indefinite leave of absence" on Friday, March 23, 2007. On Friday, April 6, 2007, Ms. Goodling formally announced her resignation.

Not a member:

  • Michael Battle was the former Director of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA). Mr. Battle, who seems to have had little responsibility for the decision to fire any U.S. Attorneys, nevertheless had the responsibility of informing the attorneys that they were getting canned. He gave his own notice on Monday, March 5, 2007, thus dis-barring himself from membership in the "TGIDOJF Club".
  • Kyle Sampson, former Chief of Staff to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, resigned on Monday, March 12, 2007. Doesn't Mr. Sampson know that resigning on a Monday is like waving a flag, jumping up and down, and yelling "Look at me! I'm resigning!!" If Mr. Sampson could not master such a simple political concept, he obviously did not need to be working in the Justice Department.

What This Doesn't MeanEdit

There is absolutely no connection between "DOJ Fridays" and "Document Dump Fridays" or the habit of saving up "negative" stories to "dump" into the friday/weekend news cycle when they are least likely to be noticed by the American public.
