Alabama, Siegelman and The Miami Herald

Always curious what other newspapers are saying about Alabama and our lives here, I found a Miami Herald editorial from Tuesday on Michael Mukasey, President Bush's choice for attorney general.

In the editorial, The Herald's editorial board mentioned an issue The Star's editorial board has been very active with -- the conviction of former Gov. Don Siegelman.

Here's what The Herald says about Mukasey and the Siegelman case:
He (Mukasey) should also be open to reviewing the dubious prosecutions of high-profile Democrats, including former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and Georgia Thompson, a Wisconsin civil servant.
