Response from Alabama GOP chairwoman

Alabama Republican Party Chair Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh released the following statement on Wednesday after learning of the federal indictments involving members of the Siegelman administration.

No one can find joy in this news. Whenever an elected or appointed official, regardless of their political party or philosophy, is accused of abusing their office, the people’s trust suffers.

We must have faith that our judicial system will strongly punish those who committed crimes and absolve those who did not. We can hope for nothing more and nothing less.
