Review Sought of Ex-Alabama Governor's Conviction
According to a report in the New York Times 75 former state attorneys general, both Democrats and Republicans, have written to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that he should personally review the file relating to former Alabama Governor Don E. Siegelman. The attorneys general cited: “gravely troublesome facts” about his prosecution that raise questions about the fairness and due process of the trial. “We believe that if prosecutorial misconduct is found, as in the case of Senator Ted Stevens, then dismissal should follow in this case as well,” the group said in the letter, which was organized by Robert Abrams, a former attorney general of New York.
