1. Siegelman Blasts DoJ and Judge In 'Final'
Reply Seeking Hearing
by Andrew Kreig for Huffington Post

Facing a sentence of 20 additional years in prison recommended by
Bush Justice Department holdovers, former Alabama Gov. Don
Siegelman finally took off the gloves Sept. 21 against his prosecutors
and the judge -- and, for once, skipped any mention of Karl Rove.

Citing new evidence since his 2006 convictions, Siegelman's
nine-page filing called for a hearing with cross-examination, plus a
new trial and new judge.

....Fearing reprisal, Siegelman has largely refrained until now from
directly challenging the judge, who was a target of a
dozen columns in
2007 alone by Harper's contributor and law professor Scott Horton.
Most of the columns alleged that the judge committed major ethical
breaches in Siegelman's case and in other activities. Most of the
allegations related to the judge's partisan Republican past, and
receipt of non-judicial federal income via his closely held military
contracting company Doss Aviation, Inc., whose Air Force contracts
include ones for refueling planes (including Air Force One) and
training Air Force pilots nationwide.

In May, I took the research further in a HuffPo column : "Siegelman
Deserves New Trial Because of Judge's 'Grudge', Evidence
Shows....$300 Million in Bush Military Contracts Awarded to Judge's
Private Company."
