Attorney General Mukasey collapses during address in Washington

Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey collapsed during an address in Washington on Wednesday, The Washington Post reported.

Mukasey, 67, who was speaking at an annual Federalist Society gathering, was rushed to George Washington University Hospital and remained there overnight or observation.

People in attendance said that Mukasey's speech became slowed and it looked like he was getting choked up, the New York Times reported.

Mukasey is the third attorney general of the Bush administration, and was sworn in Nov. 9, 2007 after the resignation of Alberto R. Gonzales.
