"Not Guilty" Says Siegelman

Just one day after being served a series of indictments, Don Siegelman was in a Montgomery courtroom declaring his innocence. Siegelman looks to remain defiant throughout the proceedings.

Through a disgruntled Democrat, I received a copy of an email Siegelman sent to his supporters. You can view the entire text here. I'll excerpt a couple of my favorite parts:
"The prosecutors don't know me but the people of Alabama do. They know me to be honest, hardworking and someone who will never, ever quit."
Not to quarrel with Siegelman's assertion, but I doubt that honesty is the predominant characteristic most Alabamians associate with the former governor. He is a tireless worker and campaigner though, you have to give him that.
"Bob Riley is afraid to face me in the General Election."
I don't know about that one either. I realize Siegelman's theory is that the investigations are a partisan witchhunt meant to wreck his political career before he can even the score with Bob Riley. But, with the campaign progressing as it is, I think Bob Riley would be relieved to face off with Siegelman in the November.

This letter and Siegelman's strategy as a whole is a pretty standard mix of declarations of innocence and demonizing the prosecutors. It worked well enough for Siegelman during his first trial, but I think the ex-governor might be going to the well one too many times.

what would any rational minded person expect siegelman to say? the truth is not in that man. he has to continue running for office because he damaged goods. The real issue is why would the judge allow siegleman to carry a gun? wasnt he kicked out of the national guard for psychiatric reasons? well, i guess siegelman believes all the unindicted coconspirators will off him, just as soon as they are indicted. I bet this is just the tip of the iceberg of public corruption in alabama. I hope they all reach their golden years in orange jumpsuits, or better yet black and white jumpsuits with leg irons assigned to pick up litter everyday so we can laugh at them.
