1. Justice in the Siegelman Case Will Start in
Montgomery, Alabama
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

What have we learned about Karl Rove's Congressional testimony
from our back-and-forth with veteran broadcast journalist and fellow
Alabama blogger Tim Lennox?

The big lesson, for me at least, is that justice in the Siegelman case
probably will not come from Washington, D.C. It is more likely to come
from Montgomery, Alabama, which is Lennox' home base.

I'm not sure if Lennox would agree, but for me, three notions have
become clear:

    * The Rove testimony, not under oath and not in public, wasn't
    designed to accomplish much. And in that sense, it was a
    "success";

    * The truth in the Siegelman case will not come out without a
    serious bottom-to-top investigation, focusing on hard evidence
    (e-mail records, phone records, etc.), as opposed to broad
    questions that can easily be sidestepped;

    * That investigation needs to start not at the top, with Rove, but
    farther down the food chain -- with some prominent
    Montgomery folks, particularly U.S. Attorney Leura Canary and
    her husband, Business Council of Alabama president William
    Canary. Rove's former Alabama point person, Kelley
    McCullough Robertson, is another key figure.
