1. Siegelman: Bush lawyers still running
Justice Department
By By Daniel Tencer  for Raw Story

President Barack Obama's Justice Department has changed little from
the Bush Justice Department because the same people are still
running the show, says former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

Siegelman is fighting a 2006 corruption conviction he and many
observers say was politically motivated and may have even been
orchestrated from within the Bush White House. Last week, Raw Story
reported that President Obama's solicitor general, Elena Kagan, is
standing by Siegelman's Bush-era conviction, saying prosecutors had
proven "corrupt intent."

"There's really been no substantial change in the heart of the
Department of Justice from the Bush-Rove Department of Justice,"
Siegelman, a Democrat, told TalkingPointsMemo's Justin Elliott. "The
people who have been writing the briefs for the government are the
same people who were involved in the prosecution."
