Siegelman Appeal Shines Spotlight on
Obama's Dismal DOJ
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

Attorneys for Don Siegelman and codefendant Richard Scrushy will
present oral argument this afternoon before the U.S. Eleventh Circuit
Court of Appeals, arguing their clients' convictions on corruption
charges should be reversed.

Siegelman, the former Democratic governor of Alabama, was at the
heart of the most notorious political prosecution of the George W. Bush
era. A three-judge panel will hear oral argument at 1 p.m., CST, today
at the federal courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida.

It's fitting that the Siegelman hearing comes as a former U.S.
Department of Justice (DOJ) official launched a blistering attack on the
Obama administration's "look forward, not backwards" approach to the
apparent crimes of the Bush administration. J. Gerald Hebert said
former Bush officials had received "get out of jail free cards," meaning
those responsible for the Siegelman prosecution and other legal
atrocities have not been held accountable.
