The AP is reporting:

A bipartisan group of 75 former state attorneys general from across the country has asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

This is an investigation that should encompass not only the Siegelman prosecution but also the larger umbrella of DOJ politicization under Bush.

The public will is on the side of transparency, investigation and accountability. Now we await learning whether the man who knows a coward when he sees one will have the courage to stand against the predictable partisan firestorm that would erupt and launch this investigation.
