In Gov. Siegelman's case, this was a "witch hunt" from the start!

Don "Bugsy" Siegelman is a crook pure and simple. I hope he serves some serious jail time.

Long about "now" we wish his state education lottery had been successful. Get ready for more sales tax to fund education.

Why can't they just admit they did something illegal and take the punishment for it? Quit wasting taxpayer's money trying to appeal!!

It is a shame our politicians are not punished just like the normal citizen. I say he should have served time while the supreme court is looking into the corruption case. If this had been a "normal" citizen he/she would be sitting in a cell.

All these comments sound like a bunch of Republicans to me, that has not been keeping up with the case an what ever evendice there is, dont judge someone untill you know the whole, truth, an since you are Republican, ask yourselfs, what happened to the $50,000 that the Governer Rilley, received when he went to California to look for jobs an went to the Champinship Game instead, how about putting him in jail also, hell they are all crooks, an always will be untill you get someone in there that is not a lawyer, or business man, or Dr. put a poor old Farm Boy in office an see how much he gets done, he knows what needs to be done instead of trying to see how much he can steal, an how many people he can screw.

Oh gee, isn't it funny how the parasites in our society get a "do over" if they cry enough abouit it. Donny boy is a dishonest blood sucker plain and simple. But he got caught and doesn't want to answer for what he did.
Well cry me a river there Don. Be a real man take your lumps and move on. What a piece of garbage.

What does Bob Riley have to do with this? If he does something illegal then he should be punished for it too. There is no politics about this it was ILLEGAL!! period.

I am a Republican and I strongly opposed Don Siegelman on the lottery issue. However, I am ashamed of the fact that some members of the Republican Party conjured up a criminal prosecution for political purposes. They are not true Republicans and this politically motivated prosecution and conviction were an abomination and a disgrace to our country. The attorney generals of 44 states - Democrat and Republicans alike have demanded a review of those convictions. Thank goodness the Supreme Court has done likewise.

All the cronies running around under Donny spending special fundings, he did it for money plain and simple. He got caught, send him back to his pin to serve his term.

Everyone who convicted him should be ashamed! This guy was railroaded! Bush administration cronies and republican cronies in Alabama. This guy was sent to prison?! Please! Karl rove, had a big part in this fiasco! This guy was subject of wrong targeting. For shame on people involved! How come signal was blocked on night of television magazine special about it?
