Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman is writing a book that he says will tell the whole story of his political career — both the good and bad of 20 years in office and the corruption probe that ended with his convictionm on bribery and obstruction of justice charges.
Siegelman, who said he expects to be sentenced to a prison term by a federal judge in the next couple of months, has e-mailed friends and former associates asking them to send him stories about how his actions “in public service personally affected your life.”
“This is going to be more than just an account of my political life. I want it to be something people will actually read,” Siegelman said in an interview Friday.
What do you think he’ll call it? “I did not sell my office for personal gain, but if I did, here’s how I did it.”
