1. Siegelman attorneys ready to begin appeals process

Alabama prosecutor continues the Siegelman
hunt...

...Lead prosecutor Louis Franklin said they never asked Bailey to
write out his testimony."

Which is why any new scrutiny of the case might pose a problem for
Franklin himself. But there is much more that Franklin has to worry
about.  Scott Horton of Harper's does a nice job of summarizing some
of the problems with Franklin HERE.

I have two questions for Franklin:

1. Did Mr. Franklin ever have dinner with Karl Rove in Washington DC
during 2004 - 2007?

2. Did Mr. Franklin ever have dinner with Karl Rove in Alabama during
2004-2007?

Double-dipping ban on two-year college
employees in place
Associated Press in the Huntsville Times

Policies that bar employees of the two-year college system from
holding elected office are now officially in place.

Chancellor Bradley Byrne has told college presidents that the policies
are effective immediately.

That means several system employees who are currently serving in
the Legislature will have to start using their leave time to go to the
Capitol or choose between the two jobs.

The U.S. Department of Justice cleared the policies late last week and
Byrne sent a memo today telling college presidents to begin enforcing
them.

A lawsuit filed by the Alabama Education Association challenging the
policies is still pending.

Byrne said the system does not have to wait until the lawsuit is
resolved before enforcing the new rules.
