Video: Siegelmania!

Views

Here’s video from yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on selective prosecutions, where ex-Gov. Don Siegelman’s (D-AL) was the marquee case:

As we reported yesterday, Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) made a hard run at Jill Simpson, the Republican lawyer who’s testified that Alabama Republicans often chattered about how the Justice Department and local U.S. attorneys would take Siegelman down. Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) rose to her defense, and Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney himself and lawyer for Siegelman, testified that the case took on a new life in 2005 after officials in Washington got involved.

You can see video of former attorney general Dick Thornburgh’s testimony here.

Update: This post originally mistakenly identified Davis as a Republican.
