The Alabama Republican Party wasted no time in sharing their response to last night’s report on CBS’ 60 Minutes about allegations that former governor Don Siegelman’s prosecution was politically motivated (even though we weren’t necessarily that fast in posting these links ourselves – we’re still upgrading the site). Check out Wade on Birmingham’s recent post on this to catch up on the background. And it looks like it’s far from over.
For those of you just tuning in, last night the long-running news program broadcast a story that talked about the situation – against the Oscars no less. The party responded swiftly with this press release last night and this fact sheet (PDF) later on. There has not been a response as of yet on the state’s Democratic Party website.
Anyone who thinks that this issue is a dead one – there are more than 1500 comments posted to the story on CBS News’ site at the time of this posting. We’ll be hearing about it for a while longer.
