From "B, ham Weekly"- On Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman

Below, find the link to an insightful but sad look at a former Alabama political star who allegedly went 'bad'. At the end of the day, the disappointed people of Alabama have to watch a former Governor they had originally elected to enact positive change, go to jail.

Perhaps, this is just an example, albeit Southern style, of a system steeped in back slappin, bourbon soaked political wheeling and dealing as well as the explicit pedaling and purchasing of Government influence. In this case from the Heart of Dixie, exposed for all to see. The final verdict, opportunistic and corrupt, and a slap in the face of those who believed in a man's initial message.
