FBI probe focuses on Windom, too
By Francis X. Gilpin of Montgomery Advertiser

A federal grand jury wants to investigate allegations that former Lt.
Gov. Steve Windom played a role in an attempted shakedown of
Montgomery insurance executive John W. Goff, according to court
records filed this week.

....It was Windom who recommended Walter A. Bell to Gov. Bob Riley
before the governor appointed him state insurance commissioner,
and the appointment gave Bell control over Goff's state insurance
contract.

Goff said the Windom associates demanded what would have
amounted to a $200,000-a-year cut from his insurance sales
commissions if he wanted to retain his contracts with the state.
