BRADENTON, Fla. - Albert LaPierre today will enter a guilty plea in Alabama federal court to one count each of conspiracy and filing a false tax return stemming from last December's 101-count, pay-to-play criminal indictment related to Jefferson County, Ala's sewer bond deals.

LaPierre, a lobbyist and former executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, has agreed to testify against his long-time friends - former Jefferson County commission president Larry Langford, now mayor of Birmingham, and Montgomery bond dealer William Blount - also named in the indictment.
