Dan Abrams & MSNBC/AP covers Don Siegelman
MSNBC/AP reports Alabama TV station red-faced after blackout: ‘60 Minutes’ story on Siegelman doesn’t air at original time and do a fine job of explaining the many questions due for this Bass Brothers station. Moreover, MSNBC's Dan Abrams is surely due a tip of the tam for examining in great detail the situation for Don Siegelman. The video above is just over ten minutes yet it is so helpful I think for exposing what appears to have been a political hit job carried out via our justice system. Truly an investigation and Don's release pending his appeal (plus increasingly available other post-conviction possibilities!) seems like the least required.
Some mention was made of similar allegations against Senator Jeff Sessions and former AG (now Bu$hCo appointed federal judge) Mark Pryor yet the explanation was lacking. The preparation of star prosecution witness Bailey plus the apparent voluminous notes of him trying to get their story straight was also covered. Dan Abrams actually called out AG Mukasey on the need to examine this case and pledged a follow up. Former Siegelman attorney Doug Jones and former GOP operative Dana Jill Simpson came across as solid and believable. I can't help but get a little excited that justice may soon come for Don Siegelman and his family. John Gunn
