A federal grand jury in Montgomery resumed its government corruption investigation Tuesday. The witnesses appearing before the grand jury included present and former officials of Waste Management, a Montgomery lobbyist, and a former official of an investment firm used by Gov. Don Siegelman and the Alabama Democratic Party.
Steve Culbertson, a former partner in AFS Equities in Birmingham, says he was asked about investments the firm made for the Alabama Democratic Party in 1999. He says he was not asked about any investments by Siegelman.
Montgomery lobbyist Bob Geddie says he was asked to bring some documents to the grand jury, including one check he signed. Geddie declined to elaborate.
The grand jury also heard from one present and one former Waste Management official. A company attorney says the grand jury was interested in a tax break the company received from the state during the Siegelman administration.
The grand jury also heard from Montgomery attorney Tom Debray, who represented Waste Management when it first started seeking a tax break from the state. Debray said he was no longer representing the company when it got the tax break in 1999.
