Feds May Deny Access to Siegelman in Jail
North Alabama attorney and GOP Whistleblower Jill Simpson was interviewed by CBS’s Sixty Minutes Sunday in preparation for an upcoming show on the political prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.
Sources close to Ms. Simpson and the Sixty Minutes show also say the federal prison system has refused to allow an on-camera interview with Mr. Siegelman in the Louisiana prison he is being held in without the benefit of an appeal bond, although indications are that may change.
“Jill did fabulously,” Montgomery attorney Priscilla Duncan said. “She was clear and looked great.”
The reporter and producers of the show were also pleased with the way the interview went.
“They were all very happy,” she said.
Also, the House Judiciary Committee may release the transcript of Ms. Simpson’s deposition before the committee staff and legal counsel from a couple of weeks ago on Tuesday.
