Selective Justice in Alabama? – TIME

Well, at least it’s a different type of selective justice than we’re used to. It turns out that Lanny Young not only said that he bribed Siegelman, but that he bribed Sessions and Pryor too. Did they get prosecuted or even investigated? Of course not. Heck, Pryor got appointed a Federal judge.

He’s simply wrong about Siegelman’s chances in 2006; he wasn’t going to win the nomination and he wasn’t going to beat Riley if he did, though presumably he would have at least tried to win, unlike Lucy Baxley. Going after Siegelman was just Republican piling on.
