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?
