Thursday, November 01, 2007

In 2006, Alabama’s Democratic Governor Don Siegelman was convicted of corruption charges, and he was sentenced to 7 years in prison. But top Alabama Republicans involved in the same scandal were not investigated or prosecuted. On Underreported, Adam Zagorin, a journalist for Time magazine, talks about what happened, and whether Karl Rove may have been involved.
