The Hits Just Keep On Comin'

Don Siegelman's legal troubles got a little stickier yesterday as a federal grand jury handed down a new indictment adding another count of mail fraud and conspiracy against the former governor. Philip Rawls at the AP has a comprehensive look at the legal aspects of the indictments.

Siegelman's response to the new charges was predictable.

"They are going to try to pull every trick in the book to manipulate the 2006 election," the former governor said Monday.
It should be noted that these charges come on the heels of another recent article that discusses the difficulty of proving a quid pro quo in the Siegelman case. Because the alleged bribes went into Siegelman's campaign treasury instead of his pocket, it will be harder for the government to prove intent.

So is the new indictment just a way for the government to throw more at Siegelman and hope that something sticks? I don't know. Perhaps some of the attorneys who visit and post here can break down the merits of the case. But either way, Siegelman's path back to the governor's office just got a little longer.

I am not surprised. I am surprised Siegelman has not yet been indicted on his house sale scheme involving lanny vines and wray pearce. But another grand jury can be up and running for groundhoug day!

if the alabama democratic party had any sense of dignity, it would convene a special panel to remove don siegelman from the party.
they did it in 86 so lets do it in 06. Siegelman is what is wrong with alabama and alabama democrats. The party can show its commitment to ethics, the rule of law, God, and yes, the citizens, by kicking out siegelman once and for all. This way, he can run around the state with absolutely no credibility. Its time for the democratic party to take what credibility it gives siegelman, away once and for call. God forgive siegelman but we dont have too. Good Riddance.

Siegelman is toast because scrushy has money and the feds want answers. scrushy has bigger fish to fry than the fools in the siegelman corruption daisy chain.
Scrushy can find redemption in this sad chapter of alabama history
