But today we see around us the a growing distrust in the impartial process of justice, and the Don Siegelman Case is a prime example of that.
Glynn Wilson writes in his blog, The New American Journal, that there are 4 reasons that Don Siegelman should not be in prison. Here is the first:
Myth Buster One – Don was not bribed! The lottery-education money went to the bank, not to Don’s pockets.
“One, there was no explicit proof of a quid pro quo for Siegelman’s appointment of Scrushy to the state hospital regulatory board. This exchange was supposedly for contributions of $500,000 to pay off the debt on an attempt to create an education-lottery in the state, a campaign which failed largely due to the flood of millions of dollars in competing gambling money coming into the state through Ralph Reed, [Grover Norquist] and . . . Jack Abramoff. None of the lottery-education money went into Siegelman’s pocket. The bank got all its money back. The people lost a chance at millions to improve public education.”
