Siegelman Supporter in Birmingham

A supporter of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman holds a sign on a Birmingham street along the route that the governor took from Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport after his 2017 release from federal prison in Oakdale, Louisiana. Crowds of people lined the route and the airport arrivals area to welcome him back to Alabama after serving 78 months for a bribery conviction that many legal experts believe to have been politically motivated.
