    Jacob Soboroff  of Huffpost Live!
    interviews Dana Siegelman and Mimi
    Kennedy
    Interview includes former Alabama Congressman, Parker
    Griffith, Grant Wood and Scott Horton.

    Karl Rove's hands are all over this," former
    Congressman Griffith told Soboroff. "This is absolutely,
    one of the most unjust things I've ever encountered. The
    Karl Rove southern strategy is a racist strategy, it pits
    people against one another, it splits us apart and he was
    very successful in vetting judges."

    of the Siegelman Case

    Ex-Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman
    Speaks Out ... Hours Before Returning
    to Jail
    Interview with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!

    AMY GOODMAN: We begin our show with the man who
    the American Trial Lawyer magazine calls America’s
    "Political Prisoner #1." That’s Don Siegelman, the former
    governor of Alabama, who returns to federal prison today
    to resume his six-and-a-half-year sentence. He was
    convicted on bribery charges stemming from his
    appointment of a campaign donor to a non-paying
    government board.

Harper's:
The Chronicles of
Don Siegelman
a series of online articles by Scott
Horton

Since June 1, 2007, Scott Horton
has been following the strange
case of former Alabama
Governor Don Siegelman,  
imprisoned for nine months on a
conviction of charges of bribery,
conspiracy and mail fraud.
Siegelman's case has
ramifications far beyond
Alabama. It connects Karl Rove,
the Department of Justice,
Alberto Gonzales, and a biased
and compromised media.

His latest article about Don's Case
is
 "Boss Rove's Justice" and
the role that the Justice
Department can play in political
fund-raising, a cornerstone of  
Rove's strategy.

Horton's research is ongoing. You
