It is my pleasure to interview Scott Horton once again. He is a lawyer and writer at Harpers magazine. He is an adjunct professor at the Columbia School of Law, with an interest in international law and human rights. I talked to him about what he is doing recently and we spent a few minutes talking about Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke. Scott believes that the statements that Rush Limbaugh made may actually be libelous. Horton has written extensively on Don Siegelman’s ordeal. Don Siegelman is the former Democratic governor of Alabama. There are lots of bizarre issues surrounding Don Siegelman. He lost a very close election under questionable circumstances. He was indicted and convicted on some of the most nebulous pay to play charges. Both the judge and the prosecuting attorney general had significant conflicts of interest. Don Siegelman’s story was on 60 Minutes. He is currently petitioning the Supreme Court to take a look at his case.
Take a few minutes and listen to this fabulous interview. Enjoy. (I’d like to personally thank Scott Horton for taking time out of his busy day.)
