Siegelman still says election was pilfered

Ex-governor using professor's report to back up his claim

By Dana Beyerle
Montgomery Bureau

MONTGOMERY -- Former Gov. Don Siegelman still believes the 2002 governor's race was stolen from him by someone who manipulated a Baldwin County vote-count computer.

He's using an Auburn University professor's report to back him up.

"Oh yeah, I believe it. Absolutely,'' Siegelman said last week. "There's no way for a computer to get different results.''

On Nov. 5, 2002, Baldwin County election officials, based on a vote tally at 11:04 p.m., initially reported that Siegelman got 19,070 votes in the county, while challenger Bob Riley got 31,052.


"The manipulation that I suspect took place, I'm pretty certain took place in the tallying machine,'' Gundlach said. "After everybody left, except a handful of Republican officials, they ran another set and pulled the second set back and ran a third set. (The third set) were the final certified results, which gave Riley the election.''
