An objective reader might take issue with the two posts we’ve written in recent days showing that former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman was wrongly convicted. You can check out the two posts here:
A constructive critic might say: “Hey, you draw entirely from the Siegelman appeal, but you do not include information from the prosecution’s response.”
That’s a point well taken. And there are two reasons for the lack of response from the prosecution side. One, I don’t have a copy of their response. But more importantly, I don’t think I would trust it if I did have a copy.
I’ve seen the Bush Justice Department at work enough to know that even career prosecutors seem to be more interested in pushing a political agenda than in seeing to it that justice is done.
