Outrageous "Justice" from GOP Judge

Outrageous "Justice" from GOP Judge
by Pam Miles on Aladems.org

The 11th Circuit should release Don Siegelman because he has
been denied his right to an appeal based on a technicality and Judge
Fuller is refusing to come clean about why he refused bond for the
former governor. Alabama, where is the outrage? Republicans talk
about activist judges being bad for our society... I can't think of
anything more activist than partisan justice from the DOJ and the
federal bench.

Riley campaign's excessive corporate
donations may have violated law
by Bob Gambarcuta of the Montgomery Independent

It appears that Gov. Bob Riley's gubernatorial campaigns in 2002
and 2006 may have violated the state's Fair Campaign Practices Act
by improperly reporting the use of corporate airplanes, and
improperly reporting advertising and printing donations to the
campaign.

In the 2006 campaign, Gov. Riley apparently failed to properly report
the in-kind contributions of at least two corporate airplanes. In both
cases, the aircraft used by Gov. Riley are listed as in-kind
contributions from individuals and not from the corporations which
actually own the airplanes.
