with no advance word and way off the media radar.

Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman has been released from a federal prison in Louisiana where he was serving a six-year sentence for bribery and obstruction of justice.
Longtime aide Chip Hill said Siegelman’s brother received a call Wednesday morning confirming his release. Federal prison officials are driving Siegelman to the probation office in Birmingham. He is expected to go home on house arrest.
A federal jury in 2006 convicted Siegelman of selling an appointment to a state health board in exchange for donations to his 1999 campaign for a state lottery.

Could it be that the powers-that-be in Alabama look to have engineered a political vendetta that landed Siegelman behind bars? Legal Schnauzer’s Roger Shuler has researched and written extensively about the Siegelman case, and you can find an archive of those articles here.
