The ‘B’ham News’ Revs Up the Slime Machine
Scott Horton Harper's

According to my source, the word went out: Slime Artur Davis. If you
can’t hit him personally, at least slime some senior aide who works for
him. Do it quickly.

I am told that the News will use one of its marquee writers for this,
probably one who has been deep in the anti-Siegelman vendetta.
Also, the News has been busily poring over the list of Davis’s staffers,
family, and other associates to find someone it can land a blow
against, hopefully in time for the Sunday edition.

GOP lawyer deposed on Alabama case
By Ben Evans, Associated Press Writer

Jill Simpson was called to the Capitol to provide sworn testimony
about her claim that she heard discussions in 2002 suggesting that
Rove, a former top White House political adviser, may have played a
role in the corruption case against Siegelman. At the time of the
alleged conversation, Simpson was a campaign worker for
Republican Gov. Bob Riley, who defeated Siegelman in that year's
gubernatorial race.

"We answered their questions," Simpson's attorney Priscilla Duncan
told reporters after the deposition, declining to elaborate.

A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman said it could be weeks before
the parties involved decide whether to release a transcript of Friday's
interview, conducted by Democratic and Republican attorneys for the
committee.
