Gallion trying to expose the conspiracy behind the Siegelman Prosecution
Back in 2007, Thomas Gallion III gave Jill Simpson legal representation defending her sworn statement that the Riley’s and other high powered GOP were conspiring to politically prosecute Alabama Siegelman.
Rob Riley is lying about Simpson’s Sworn Testimony
In defence of Simpson, Gallion stated for the Times Daily “that since Rob Riley once said he barely knew Simpson, a classmate at the University of Alabama, anything he says has to be taken with a grain of salt.” It turns out that they not only knew each other at the University, they ran against each other for class office. “Jill Simpson has shown me, and I have witnessed with my own eyes, she has represented Rob Riley in plaintiff cases and has canceled checks and documents … and I believe what she says is true,” Gallion said. “What they ought to do with everybody involved (on Rob Riley’s side) is to go to Washington and testify.”
Yet Another Recusal for Leura Canary
Later, Gallion asked for a recusal for Leura Canary who is being accused of improperly involving herself in criminal proceedings in which her husband had strong business interests. An article in Harpers states “Mrs. Canary is abusing her office by launching a criminal investigation targeting persons who have recently raised corruption allegations against Alabama Governor Bob Riley and former Lieutenant Governor Steve Windom, clients of her husband.” He and Don Jones wrote a 14 page letter with 79 pages of exhibits to persons in the U.S. Justice Department, including Margolis.

Eventually, Tommy Gallion went on screen and told his own story in this documentary. He reports that he had been approached by the members of the phone/conference conspiracy call to join them in their plan to prosecute Siegelman. To learn more, view his interview in the film.
