Countdown to Siegelman Court Date–Just 3 days until former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman has his appeal heard in the 11th District Court of Appeals. I’m reviewing Louis Franklin’s response to the Siegelman defense and will highlight his points in less tedious language over the next few days.
While Siegelman fought the Bush Justice Department for his life and liberty, a juror called “Flipper” was looking for love on the prosecution team. Flipper was so nicknamed because she did gymnastic maneuvers to pass time with other jurors. According to Alabama Middle District emails, Flipper had the hots for an FBI agent named Keith on the prosecution team.
Taking up the limber Flipper’s cause, jurors made inquiries through the U.S. Marshall on Keith’s marital status. Flipper’s mission to tap that became fodder for casual conversation among the prosecution team emails.
Franklin argues those emails are irrelevant.
