MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld most of the bribery and corruption charges against former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and all the charges against former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
Atlanta struck down two of the seven charges that Siegelman was
convicted of and ordered a new sentencing hearing.

But it upheld key bribery, conspiracy and obstruction counts against him.

The court upheld all six counts against Scrushy in a bribery
scheme with Siegelman when he was governor.

Siegelman was sentenced to more than seven years when convicted. Scrushy is serving almost seven years.

    I hope that our crooked ex-governor can be kept in the Federal pen a long time. He is the worst in my memory and I am 80 years old. He has pointed at this job since high school and played a heavy hand in the student political machine at the University of Alabama, being elected President of the SGA. He was crooked then and learned a lot from the experience; Chicago politics moved south.
