Justice Department reopens investigation into juror misconduct
The Justice Department has reopened an investigation into potential juror misconduct in the bribery conviction of former Democratic Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, whose case has widely been panned as an example of political prosecution.

The revealed was first reported by Glynn Wilson, on the Locust Forks Journal. The filing is available at his site.

2. Right. Dropping the conviction would be great. But diverting
attention from the misconduct of the Justice Department to the misconduct of the jurors is a weasel. Both incidents of misconduct are serious and should be investigated and punished as appropriate.
