U.S. Attorneys Scandal: Removal of Canary
Scott Horton of Harper's

... the new attorney general...has received a request that he take
similar steps [to remove] ... the U.S. Attorney who initiated the
notorious Siegelman prosecution, Leura Canary.

Alabama’s number one power couple, suggests Time Magazine,
consists of Leura Canary, the U.S. Attorney in Montgomery, and her
husband William J. Canary, the state’s most prominent G.O.P.
campaign advisor. Those on the other side of Mr. Canary’s campaign
efforts have a strange habit of finding themselves the target of a
criminal investigation led by Mrs. Canary.

the teevy

....At least four “60 Minutes” producers have been working in-state
for the last few weeks, says a “local political operative” who tells
Stevenson he was contacted by one of them. “Air date is scheduled
for no later than early December,” according to another Stevenson
source.

...The Goff case appears to represent a particularly vicious form of
vindictive behavior by a prosecutor. As part of Goff's lawsuit, Gallion
and Jones gave notice of their intention to take the depositions of
Governor Riley, his son Rob, and Bill Canary.

"They were astonished to discover a response from Mrs. Canary in
the form of a criminal investigation opened against their client,"
Horton writes. "In a particularly abusive move, Mrs. Canary also
served grand jury subpoenas against the lawyers, in a likely effort to
block them from further representation of their clients."
