Judge, conduct of Siegelman trial defended
by Eddie Curran writing for the Montgomery Independent

Editor's Note: Eddie Curran is on leave from the Mobile Press-
Register while writing a book on the Don Siegelman investigation,
indictment and trial. The Independent's readers should be familiar with
Eddie's articles about the former governor, most which were published
in this newspaper and had a significant impact on the investigation
and indictment of Siegelman....

Eddie called and requested to write this article, which we publish
without editing, and even though it is an opinion article, we start it on
Page One.

The Smear Job - Round Two...
by Larisa Alexandrovna of At-Largely

    Quinn of the American Spectator: "THE TRUTH IS that the
    entire Siegelman investigation stemmed from a series of articles
    in the Mobile Register (my former newspaper) by ace
    investigative reporter Eddie Curran, a winner of numerous
    journalism awards who is anything but a Republican."

Actually the TRUTH is a bit more interesting than this. Mr. Curran - I
am told - authored in ghost form some Siegelman prosecution
documents. That hardly makes him an ace investigative journalist.
Rather, he appears to be nothing more than a hired shill. I suggest
Mr. Quin vet his sources better. He might want to ask Mr. Curran
about his father's close friendship with Senator Jeff Sessions.

...The rest of Quin's piece is predictably a pathetic attempt to defend
Karl Rove, who won't even defend himself by testifying under oath.
Ms. Simpson testified under oath and that alone puts her credibility far
above that of a man known to be a liar, who uses the press as his
personal propaganda tool, and refuses to address each allegation
under oath. Until Mr. Rove appears before Congress and addresses
each one of these allegations, his credibility problem will continue.
And reporters who come to his defense based on his word alone are
either incredibly flawed or incredibly paid off. Which is it Mr. Quin? I
am curious.
