18. Juries depend on the testimony they are presented. They must act on the case
as presented. The jury verdict in no way absolves those who acted to prosecute this case.

Consider this. Why isn't Riley being prosecuted for the following, receiving $300,000 in campaign donations? In contrast, Don Seigelman acted to benefit the State of Alabama, not his campaign coffers!

PAC Gives $300K to Riley, After Getting $50 Million State Contract
http://alelections.blogspot.com/2006/01/pac-gives-300k-...

Eddie Curran at the Mobile Register has a revelatory piece about Bob Riley's re-election fundraising. According to filings with the Sec of State, a PAC called Alabamians for Technology donated $300,000 in December to Riley's re-election campaign.

There doesn't seem to be any speculation that anything illegal took place, but there sure are a lot of unseemly details.

-- The PAC was formed, and largely bankrolled, by executives who benefited from a $50 million state contract.
-- The PAC was formed on Dec 16, 2005 and just three days later gave the $300K to Riley.
-- The PAC had taken $325K which means the $300K given to Riley accounts for over 92% of the PAC's monies.
