Oh, hooray!

Siegelman’s case headed for Congress- al.com

To reiterate: Siegelman got in lots of trouble as governor and was almost certainly guilty, but the Birmingham US Attorney is completely incompetent and wound up blowing the case before it even got to trial. So the Montgomery prosecutor decided to go after Siegelman (and Scrushy, whose case Birmingham also screwed up) and got convictions for what is essentially politics as usual; if Siegelman is guilty so is everyone else from President Bush on down. And then there were reports of Karl Rove getting involved, which made no sense because Siegelman wasn’t going to be the Democratic nominee no matter what, but Rove is stupid enough to spend energy on such a thing, so you can’t count it out.
