Don Siegelman can't avoid jury's verdict

March 10, 2009

IN THE wake of a stinging defeat in federal court, former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman has intensified his political campaign to overturn his 2006 conviction on corruption charges.

Mr. Siegelman, who was interviewed Monday on CNN, continues to proclaim his innocence and blame his plight on Republicans. He seems undismayed by a unanimous federal appeals court ruling, issued Friday, that upheld the key bribery and obstruction counts against him.

The former governor may believe his best hope lies in further inflaming partisan passions against former White House adviser Karl Rove and other Bush administration officials targeted in a congressional probe of the Bush Justice Department.

But if Mr. Siegelman is going to win his freedom, he will have to persuade a federal appellate court that he was wrongly convicted. He won't be vindicated by a kangaroo court composed of Democrats seeking vengeance against Karl Rove.
