By  | 

A former Alabama governor has been indicted.

Federal prosecutors say former governor Don Siegelman is accused along with two others in an alleged bid-rigging scheme.

Siegelman and his former chief of staff, Paul Hamrick, are accused of helping a physician in Tuscaloosa to rig bids for a maternity care program, while Siegelman was governor.

He and the former aide are accused of moving more than a half-million dollars from the state education budget to the State Fire College. It says Doctor Phillip Bobo used the money to pay off a competitor for a state contract for maternity care.
