Q & A with Don Siegelman

Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, tried and convicted on the novel charges of governing in Dixie while a Democrat, gave an interview to The Anniston Star, a leading Alabama newspapers.

Here's a link for your evening pleasure along with a few passages:

The Star: Your case has gotten a lot of national media attention. Are you surprised at that?

Siegelman: [MSNBC anchor] Keith Oberman had a segment about the three worst scandals in the Bush administration, and they had something called "Siegelman Gate" (chuckle). They had this case, Blackwater and the war in Iraq as the worst.

I think this will make Watergate look like child's play when it is fully investigated, not so much this case because certainly it's not about me. It's about restoring justice and protecting our democracy and, because this case shows the lengths to which those who are obsessed with power will go in order to gain power or retain power, it has attracted the attention of the national press.

Yes, after Karl Rove and his merry band of criminal thugs are forced to testify under oath, the break-in of years ago will indeed look like child's play.

In the meantime, the howler sure hopes Republican whistleblower Dana Jill Simpson has a few buffy guards to keep her safe, and she ain't joking one bit.
