Is he a Republican or a Democrat? Only The Shadow knows.
Ex-governor, Scrushy convicted

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (AP) -- Former Gov. Don Siegelman and former HealthSouth chief executive Richard Scrushy were convicted Thursday in a bribery scheme that derailed Siegelman's campaign to retake his former office.
No mention of party affiliation in paragraph one, even though the MSM custom is to put ‘(D)’ or ‘(R)’ following the first mention of a politician's name.

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.
Still no affiliation mentioned.

Scrushy, who once ran the Birmingham-based rehabilitation chain, 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.
Another paragraph and not a whiff.

The case was tried as Siegelman sought the Democratic nomination for governor, and the trial put him in court during the final weeks of the campaign. He lost to Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley in the June 6 Democratic primary and blamed the charges for his defeat...
There we go. What a surprise, he’s a Democrat!

After watching Scrushy's cynical antics with forming a "ministry" as if such an act would allow him to acquire a choir boy appeal in the face of impending corruption trials it proves satisfying to see this respiratory therapist turned cheating scumbag advance closer to his God of vengeance in federal prison. Enjoy your earned time behind bars with the photo of your yacht constructed from money squandered from Medicare and the life work of elderly and sick people whom you parasitised, Scrushy, you callous sociopath bastard.
