1.  Memo to Holder: Siegelman Prosecution
Was Riddled With Misconduct
by Andrew Kreig, DC journalist and attorney, for the Huffington Post

.... In each case, federal prosecutors failed to disclose evidence to the
defense. And William M. Welch, chief of the U.S. Public Integrity
Section, was involved in each case.

Alabama attorney and GOP whistleblower Jill Simpson says Welch
also was involved in the Siegelman case. And as happened in Alaska,
Welch apparently withheld key information from the defense. Simpson
says Welch came to Alabama when defense attorneys in the
Siegelman case moved for the recusal of U.S. District Judge Mark
Fuller. Welch's role, Simpson says, was to defend Fuller--and he
succeeded in keeping the judge on the case.

But Simpson says Welch should have been aware of an affidavit from
Missouri attorney Paul Weeks, charging Fuller with misconduct,
perhaps of a criminal nature.
