that executive privilege freed him from an obligation to testify, leaving
open the possibility the Republican political guru will be held in
contempt.

Siegelman says, "No person should be above the law. There's nothing
in the constitution that says just because you worked for the President
you get to disobey the law and don't show up for subpoenas. There is
no reason why Karl Rove should not be made to appear before
Congress."

Siegelman spent 9 months in prison for his conviction on bribery and
conspiracy charges.  He was released in March while he appeals his
case to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.  More paperwork is due to
the court at the end of the month.  There's no time table for a decision
to be made.
