Attorney General Michael Mukasey Collapses

Attorney General Michael Mukasey was giving a speech at the Federalist Society when he started shaking and collapsed. An AP report said that he got stuck on a word, repeating it several times before he went down. Associate Attorney General Kevin O’Connor said that Mukasey was conscious about an hour after his collapse.

Update: The latest from the AP:

“The attorney general is conscious, conversant and alert,” Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr said after doctors admitted Mulsasey to George Washington University Hospital for the night.
