1. Siegelman Appeal Argued this Week
by Scott Horton for Harper's

In 1798, the Federalists decided to silence an outspoken Democratic
Congressman, Matthew Lyon, by prosecuting and imprisoning him.
But the effort backfired. Lyon was reelected from prison, and in 1800
he cast from his prison cell the decisive vote ending the rule of the
Federalists and starting the first administration of the Democratic
Party, under Thomas Jefferson. The Federalist’s grip on power was
shattered and they soon disappeared from the political scene
altogether. The Lyon prosecution was viewed by American historians
as the most outrageous political prosecution in the nation’s history…
until the Bush Justice Department’s prosecution of former Alabama
Governor Don E. Siegelman, that is.

2. Siegelman Juror was looking for love in all
the wrong places
by writechicpress

....While Siegelman fought the Bush Justice Department for his life
and liberty, a juror called “Flipper” was looking for love on the
prosecution team.  Flipper was so nicknamed because she did
gymnastic maneuvers to pass time with other jurors.  According to
Alabama Middle District emails, Flipper had the hots for an FBI agent
named Keith on the prosecution team.

Taking up the limber Flipper’s cause, jurors made inquiries through
the U.S. Marshall on Keith’s marital status.  Flipper’s mission to tap
that became fodder for casual conversation among the prosecution
team emails.

anyone that they prosecuted.
