(Newser) – Alberto Gonzales will attend tomorrow’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, the Washington Post reports. Gonzales, a guest of the Houston Chronicle, will be hard-pressed to avoid members of a new administration that has all but vilified his actions as Bush attorney general. But, for a man under investigation both for the firing of US attorneys and legalizing torture, the dinner may be a chance to relive the good old days.
