2. The Cheating of Don Siegelman, Part V
by Roger Shuler for Legal Schnauzer


....
Finally, we turn to the evidence itself. Was it sufficient to prove
bribery? The answer is no.

The key testimony in the entire trial was from Siegelman aide Nick
Bailey. Here's how it went:

    The crucial testimony of star prosecution witness Bailey was as
    follows: that he asked Governor Siegelman what Scrushy was
    “going to want for that [campaign contribution]? And his
    response was, the CON Board....” Bailey then testified he
    commented: “I wouldn’t think that would be a problem, would it?”
    and that Governor Siegelman responded: “I wouldn’t think so.”
    [R36-673 p. 268 (Tr. 507)(emphasis supplied)].

But this falls well short of the explicit quid pro quo standard required
for a bribery conviction that involves a campaign contribution.
