Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman Deserves New Trial Because of Judge's 'Grudge,' Whistleblower Says

$300 Million in Bush Contracts Enriched Judge's Private Company

WASHINGTON, DC (May 15, 2009) -"- A Missouri attorney who retains a passion for justice after 28 years of experience will speak by tele-conference Monday, May 18, about his evidence that could win a new trial for former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.  Paul B. Weeks will describe why Siegelman’s seven-year prison sentence in 2007 for corruption convictions should be overturned in what was already one of the decade’s most controversial U.S. criminal cases.

This conference call amplifies a news story published today on the Huffington Post based on five-months research by Andrew Kreig, a longtime Washington-based attorney, business executive and commentator.  The story was broken at the Huffington Post at:  click here Kreig’s consultancy Eagle View Capital Strategies has posted documentary sources and additional stories at  to enable other journalists and policy experts to pursue leads from the material, which includes comments by leading legal experts:  The material also has important ramifications for upcoming Supreme Court and other confirmation hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee and oversight investigations by both House and Senate Committees.

Weeks argues that Siegelman’s presiding judge since 2005 -"- Chief U.S. District Judge Mark E. Fuller of Montgomery -"- holds a grudge against Siegelman.  As Alabama’s last Democratic governor six years ago, Siegelman appointed a state investigator who helped Weeks document the Republican Fuller’s alleged financial misconduct.  And that misconduct, according to Weeks, has kept Siegelman’s judge on the path to wealth from Bush Administration federal military contracts, with more than $300 million award since 2006 to the closely held company.  Fuller has not commented.  But the judge is invited to participate in the tele-conference.  Oversight officials from the Department of Justice have been invited also.
