Forty Four Attorneys General Petition Congress to Investigate Prosecution of Don Siegelman

Brian Zick

Scott Horton for Harper's reports: Today forty-four attorneys general from forty of the fifty states of the Union petition the United States Congress demanding a formal inquiry into the prosecution of Don Siegelman, the former Governor of Alabama, who was falsely charged, tried and convicted in federal court proceedings in Alabama. These proceedings constitute an indelible stain on the reputation of our nation for justice, which cannot be purged until they are set aside and those who committed these crimes mockingly in the name of justice are held to account for their misconduct.
