Questions linger in Siegelman case
by Sebastion Kitchen of the Montgomery Advertiser

...There are many points, a year later, that those on both sides have
yet to concede or prove beyond a reasonable doubt. And some points
that people simply refuse to acknowledge.

And it seems that the more we find out, the more questions there are.

Was the prosecution political? If so, does that prosecution stretch all
the way to the White House and did it involve Karl Rove or any of the
Rileys or Re­publican activist Bill Canary, whose wife, Leura, is the
U.S. attorney here?

Did the prosecution begin be­fore Leura Canary was U.S. attorney for
this district, as prosecutors contend?

Why does the Justice Department refuse to release hundreds of
pages of documents on Leura Canary's recusal from the case? Why
was there a need for hundreds of pages of documents re­lated to the
recusal?

The Parlable of Lord Cornwallis
by Glynn Wilson of the Locust Fork Journal

....let’s get on with answering the Montgomery Advertisers’
questions....

    ....Did the prosecution begin before Leura Canary was U.S.
    attorney for this district, as prosecutors contend? Why does the
    Justice Department refuse to release hundreds of pages of
    documents on Leura Canary’s recusal from the case? Why was
    there a need for hundreds of pages of documents related to
    the recusal?

Of course it began before that, when then-Attorney General William
Pryor first started investigating Siegelman and communicated with the
Bush White House about it. U.S. Attorney Alice Martin in Birmingham
brought a case first, which was thrown out of court.

Then the task fell to Canary, who made a public show of recusing
herself, but never actually filed the proper paperwork and did not stop
communicating with the prosecutors chosen to try the case in court.
That’s one of the reasons they won’t release the documents.
