Rove impact deep on state's politics
By Sean Reilly, Washington Bureau of Mobile Press Register

When recruited for the 1994 Alabama court campaigns, Rove was a
Texas consultant already known for his work on judicial races, said
Matt McDonald, a Mobile lawyer who serves as general counsel for
the Alabama Civil Justice Reform Committee, a business-backed
group that promotes changes to the legal system. Another point of
contact, McDonald said, was that Rove's second wife, Darby, is from
Mobile.

The Shelby-Fuller Connection
Scott Horton of Harper's

Sure, it was peculiar that Fuller listed a government building as the
registered address of a private company that contracts with the
government. But what’s also peculiar is that the offices for Fuller’s
previous gig as District Attorney for the 12th Circuit, were at 98 North
Edwards in Enterprise. I have no idea why Doss Aviation, with Fuller
as president, was registered at One Church Street (the home of
numerous government offices including the office of Senator Shelby)
years before Fuller became a federal judge. But it does raise a very
curious question: who, exactly, was picking up that mail?

Free Don Siegelman
Rabbi Joni of English-Writing Isreali-Bloggers

Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman was wrongly tried and
convicted and deserves to be a free man helping the people of
America. Instead, he has been jailed, unable to be out on bail while
he appeals his sentence. That’s right — he’s being treated like a
flight risk even though he is one of America’s most venerable
Democratic politicians.

Gov. Siegelman was sentenced to over seven years in jail for
something he did not personally benefit from. And to be sure, it was
much less severe, than say, revealing the identities of members of
the CIA, spending billions on companies you will be working for when
you leave Washington and move back to Texas, or firing very good
attorneys because they don’t roll the way you do.
