Special Counsel Shut Down Siegelman Probe Last Year
(2008-05-08)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The U.S. Office of Special Counsel last year shut down a previously undisclosed investigation into the federal prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, according to an internal memo from the agency.

The investigation was being conducted by a Special Counsel task force formed a year ago to pursue high-profile political investigations in Washington. It began gathering information on the Siegelman case in September and was planning to request documents from the Justice Department in October before it was ordered to close the case, according to the Jan. 18 memo, made public by the Project on Government Oversight.

The investigation was one of many that the task force had taken up, and it was not the only one that the Special Counsel sought to shut down.
