Siegelman Campaign Statement on New Charges

Statement by Les Siegelman, Campaign Chairman, Siegelman 2006

"This is just more of the same. The same old tactics by the same investigators working for Bob Riley's appointed Attorney General.

This is still coming out of the office of Bob Riley's political consultant's wife. This is nothing more than the same attempt to control the 2006 election. And it is still a huge waste of taxpayer's money.

Bob Riley is scared to death to run against Don because Bob Riley tried his very best to raise your taxes, and in fact, by the stroke of a pen and an executive order, did raise your property taxes.

Bob is scared to death to run against Don who actually did do something for the people of Alabama .

None of the so-called charges have any truth or foundation at all. Would you believe any charges issued by the wife of a campaign consultant against their opponent?"
