2018 Elections

A Siegelman is back on the ballot.

Joseph Siegelman, son of former Gov. Don Siegelman, has qualified to run for attorney general on the Democratic ticket. It’s an office in which his father served for a term on his rise to the governor’s mansion. Don Siegelman was convicted on felony corruption charges along with HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy. He appealed his conviction and alleged his was a political prosecution, but he did not get his case overturned. He was released from prison one year ago. Joseph Siegelman will face lawyer Chris Christie in the Democratic primary.
