Republicans hire former Siegelman chief of staff

By Alan Collins

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Alabama Republican Senate caucus has hired former Gov. Don Siegelman's chief of staff to handle all communication work for the caucus during the next legislative session.    

Vestavia Hills Senator Jabo Waggoner sent a memo to all caucus members Friday, announcing the hiring of Paul Hamrick.  Hamrick, a Cullman native, was acquitted of all charges stemming from an indictment which eventually found Siegleman and former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy guilty on federal corruption charges.   

One Republican insider told FOX6 News the hiring is bound to raise questions within the state party and caucus. The contract was not voted on by the caucus.
