My list of Republicans to admire has grown awfully short in recent years. After getting an eyeful of "conservative" Alabama judges up close, my list was empty. But thanks to Dana Jill Simpson, the list contains at least one name.
The more I learn about the north Alabama lawyer, the more I find to admire. Since taking steps to reveal the political motivations behind the Don Siegelman prosecution, Simpson has experienced a house fire, an automobile wreck, and a persistent public thrashing from various Republicans and prosecutors connected to the Siegelman case.
But in spite of it all, Simpson is standing by her affidavit related to the Siegelman case, according to TPM Muckraker. She is even straightening out some misleading reporting by The Birmingham News.
In case you missed it, here is the text of Simpson's recent press release, which was pretty much ignored by the Alabama press.
Sounds like Simpson is ready to go to war. Will Congress give her a platform?
Roger, why no coverage or mention of Democrats Joe Espy and Rip Andrews discounting Simpson's claims, particularly as it relates to their own personal involvement in her story?
Please provide more specifics. Are you referring to some of the articles Louis Franklin cited in his press release? Franklin cited several published pieces. If that's what you are referring to, would like to know which one contained this information.
I was referring to the AP story in which Joe Espy and Rip Andrews discount Simpson's Klan story. You have since mentioned it, albeit with some interesting leaps in logic.
After my response to your e-mail, I figured you must be referring to the AP story.
