My Christmas Wish, from a Political Prisoner's Daughter

My Christmas Wish, from a Political
Prisoner's Daughter
Dana Siegelman's Diary at Dailey Kos

It is Christmas Eve, and I cannot sleep.  It is not because I am giddy
over Santa's arrival or anticipating the treats that await when I arise.  
I cannot sleep for one simple reason.  My dad has to spend
Christmas in prison while his conspirators are free to celebrate the
holiday with their families.  I have but one wish this Christmas. That
wish is for everyone who reads this to stop what they are doing or
were going to do and to take a few minutes to send one or more
letters to the House Judiciary Committee on my dad's behalf.  

Thank you. Thank you!

Here is a sample of what you could say (preferably, in your own
words):

Dear Congressman (or woman),
I am a humble observer of the travesty which has occured in our
justice system.  I have read about the Siegelman case and according
to several respectable sources, this man is not guilty.  Not only was
he set up and prosecuted for purely political reasons, his entire trial
was a disgrace.  All the laws that should have protected an innocent
man from conviction were violated.  We cannot excuse the abuse of
this administration any more.  We cannot turn a blind eye to
corruption and hope that time will heal injustice.  Siegelman was not
the only person selectively prosecuted under this administration.  
Paul Minor and others are serving time as political prisoners.  I am
begging you, as an American who cares deeply about the ideals our
government was founded on, to continue investigating selective
prosecution under this administration.  Do not allow this to get swept
away with the coming new year.  This is the time for positive change.
Thank you,
Sincerely
(Your name)
