Siegelman Trial Timetable

Dana Beyerle recently had some speculation about the timetable for the Siegelman trial. Lawyers on both sides discussed a possible February start with the trial lasting 4-6 weeks.

Obviously this would put the trial in the midst of the gubernatorial campaign. This timetable poses problems for Siegelman's candidacy. Instead of being on the campaign trail full time, Siegelman will be stuck in a Montgomery courtroom. But more importantly he will take a public relations hit as the media covers the trial in the middle of campaign season.

Hypothetically it is possible that a "not guilty" verdict cwould give Siegelman enough media attention and a fresh political start to run a 6-8 week sprint to the June primary.

However, if Siegelman is convicted before the April 7 filing deadline could we see a new Democratic candidate emerge to take on Lucy Baxley. Maybe someone along the lines of Folsom, Hammett, or Dow?

Lucy Baxley certainly stands to benefit from the Siegelman trial, but the uncertainty looks to continue until at least March or April. And that is good news for Republicans.

cant we just hang siegelman now. everybody knows he is a lying thief. why waste any more tax payers money. As to hammet running? you gotta be kidding. he looks like frankenstein. My guess is folsom waits in the wings and qualifies on april 7. But he is also making money now, unlike being in office.

Isn't Hammett one of those confounded "double-dippers?"

Yeah, he's the kind of guy who retires from public service to work for a lobbying firm that represents companies bidding for state contracts.

It's a nice living... You go to Montgomery to do good and you end up doing VERY WELL.

hammett works in a bank. he is no double dipper. I thought a democracy is where anyone can serve in public servce. i think that would include teachers

Glad to see hear he's no longer got both hands in the cookie jar.

To answer your question, teachers who earn their salary from the government have no business being able to vote on issues concerning their employment (i.e. the education budget). We might as well let employees set their salaries and criminals judge their own cases.

Oh, and by the way, we're not a democracy. We're a constitutional republic-- or supposed to be. Big difference.

I hope his trial runs on for years and he has to spend every dime of his ill gotten gains on his fellow democrat thieving lawyers. everybody knows there is a handful of democrat mafia bosses and select few lawyers who hide things for them. Maybe the Feds will sting those lawyers too. I am sick of corruption and tired of being embarrassed by alabama politicians.
