In a moment of confusion and embarrassment, Redding Pitt, a former US Attorney and AL Dem Chair, had to apologize to a Mobile Register editor after erroneously sending a profanity-laced tirade through email.
"F--- the b-----ds. We can beat them. I am serious. Redding."
That was the message Pitt relayed to a befuddled newspaper editor. Adding more confusion to the mess is the fact that the editor didn't even email Pitt in the first place. The editor emailed Don Siegelman in the hopes of getting the former governor to comment on an upcoming story. Somehow, an email to Siegelman begat the above response by Pitt.
Of course Siegelman assured the editor that the reply was not from him and Pitt promptly apologized for the "crude" error.
But the most interesting question (and one not addressed by the Mobile Register) is just who are the "b-----ds" that Pitt is sure they can "beat"? It doesn't take a psychic to guess that Pitt just might be referring to Siegelman's upcoming legal troubles.
