Siegelman lawyers say judge made errors in
denying release
By Bob Johnson Associated Press

Attorneys for former Gov. Don Siegelman say a federal judge made
numerous errors when he refused to release Siegelman from prison
while he appeals his conviction in a government corruption case.

The attorneys filed a new motion Tuesday asking the 11th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals to order Siegelman released on an appeal
bond.

They said there was substantial reason to believe he would prevail
on appeal, partly because there was no "quid pro quo" in the actions
that led to his bribery conviction. The filing also argued that the
charges were brought too late.

Greeson defended by Page

An apparent federal investigation into Rep. Todd Greeson’s work at
Northeast Alabama Community College is “a glorious witch hunt,”
Rep. Jack Page said Tuesday.

Page, D-Gadsden, is also employed by Alabama’s two-year college
system at Gadsden State Community College. His district includes
south DeKalb County.

“These efforts and money could be used so much better on fighting
the war on meth or sex offenders,” Page said. “Instead, they choose
to make a mockery of the Justice Department.”

Greeson, R-Ider, said Monday that investigators confiscated his
computer hard drive and subpoenaed co-workers when they came to
his office at Northeast Alabama Community College Thursday. He
said Tuesday postsecondary officials actually took his hard drive.

“The two-year system seizes the hard drive and the FBI subpoenas
the co-workers,” Page said. “I have a word for that. It’s called
collusion. Why are they working so closely together?
