Politicization Of Internal Revenue - 2

We discussed political persecution in the post Politicization Of Internal Revenue, and specifically mentioned the Don Siegelman case.

In that case Governor Siegelman was not given the same "treatment" Senator Stephens was given by Eric Holder, who denied Siegelman.

The Supreme Court has vacated the judgment of the Federal Appellate Court for the Eleventh Circuit, which had affirmed Seigelman's conviction.

That court will now have to reconsider the decision it made, per the Supreme Court's order:
The judgment is vacated, and the cases are remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit for further consideration in light of Skilling v. United States, 561 U.S. ___ (2010).
(ORDER LIST: 561 U.S. ___, TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 2010).
