Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is out of the hospital after heart surgery. A doctor found a blockage that put Siegelman at risk of a heart attack. Siegelman is expected to make a full recovery. The former governor’s son, Joseph Siegelman, says he’s always been inspired by his father’s strength and resilience, and his heart surgery is no exception.
The former governor was released from federal prison last year after serving time on a bribery conviction.
