Alabama: Siegelman Has No Application for Clemency!

Tim Lockette of the Anniston Star has followed the case of former Gov. Don Siegelman for some time now. He reports "more than 78,000 people have signed petitions asking for Siegelman’s release from Oakdale Federal Correctional Institution in Louisiana, where he has lived for most of the years since his 2006 conviction on bribery charges."

In addition, "more than 100 former state attorneys genera" have written a letter to President Obama urging his release.

Amazingly, however, Lockette has learned that Siegelman "has no official clemency application on file with the White House." That seems like a very odd strategy. See story here.
