GR with Scott Horton – Sept. 10-07

Don Siegelman’s was a storied political career. A democrat in staunchly republican, and overwhelmingly Christian Alabama, Siegelman managed, before ascending the Governorship, to be elected to three of the next-highest offices in the state. And, not unusually, he also managed to make a few enemies. Because, as well as being a highly effective political campaigner, Don Siegelman was also an honest administrator, a trait going decidedly against the grain of George W. Bush’s America, it wasn’t long before the Alabama democrat came to the attention of the Bush coterie. Scott Horton is a New York-based attorney, specializing in Human Rights law, and the law of Armed Conflict, and serves as a consultant to Human Rights First’s, Accountability for Military Contractors project. He’s also a co-founder of the American University in Central Asia, and is a current contributor to Harper’s magazine, writing the blog column, No Comment.
