Woods demands investigation

Daily Beast writes “Fifty-two former state attorneys general—led by former Republican Arizona attorney general and McCain for President national co-chair Grant Wood—petitioned Congress demanding that it investigate troubling irregularities in the case. The House Judiciary Committee convened a series of hearings, but the Justice Department and the White House stonewalled requests for documents and demands that the prosecutors submit to questioning. Then the Court of Appeals intervened with a dramatic and extraordinary order setting Siegelman free.” At this point he was released until the appeals court could hear his case.

Former Arizona Attorney General, who met Siegelman when they were both serving their states as AG’s, was appalled by the draconian treatment of Siegelman by the Alabama prosecution. In his interview with CBS 60Minutes about the Seigelman Case he asks:

He was manacled and shackled like a crazed killer. Now what does that tell you?
