Mukasey had at first been welcomed by Democrats as more straightforward and competent than Alberto Gonzales, the longtime associate of President Bush who quit in September dogged by scandal. 66-year old new attorney general was born in Jewish family and he is from Belarus by origin. In 1987, Mukasey was nominated as a federal district judge for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan by President Ronald Reagan. He was one of the active members of election headquarters of Roberto Juliann. /APA/
