The Knuckleheads of the Day award
Today's winners are Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and former HealthSouth chief executive Richard Scrushy. Siegelman and Scrushy were found guilty yesterday in Federal of charges they took part in a bribery scheme while the former was still in office.
Siegelman, 60, was accused of trading government favors for campaign donations when he was governor from 1999 to 2003 and lieutenant governor from 1995 to 1999.TFM despises corruption, no matter what the party. Siegelman is just another crook and Scrushy a leech. I hope they both spend a long term in prison. Don Siegelman and Richard Scrushy are today's Knuckleheads of the day.
Scrushy, who once ran the Birmingham-based chain of rehabilitation clinics, was accused of arranging $500,000 in donations to Siegelman's campaign for a state lottery in exchange for a seat on a state hospital regulatory board.
