The countdown has begun!
There is a 114 day countdown till Don Siegelman’s earliest release date in February 8, 2017. The good news is there is a possibility that “the Gov” won’t have to spend another birthday in prison! If Don is out on his birthday (the BOP has final say in this matter) what a party we will have!
Until his Release
While we countdown the days till Don’s release, Friends of Siegelman continue to push for exoneration for the former Governor. We plead for petition signatures, appeal to legal recourse, write letters & emails to the White House, post on social media, write blogs, and so on. Sometimes we are despondent because these efforts seem to go nowhere. After all, “the gov” will have served his unjust sentence in Federal prison. Despite our failed efforts, we refuse to give up hope. Surely this false imprisonment will come to some good purpose! Certainly the former Alabama Governor can return to the political career that he was called to follow.
How the South’s Only progressive Governor became America’s #1 Political Prisoner.
We will use this time until “the Gov” returns to remember how the South’s only progressive Governor became America’s #1 political prisoner. As we look back at what happened to Don Siegelman and reverse engineer the tactics & strategies used to falsely imprison this promising progressive politician. These tactics not only destroyed Don Siegelman’s life and deeply hurt the lives of his closest family, friends and allies, it thwarted the electoral will of the people of Alabama.
In the following months we will go back over the media attention that the Siegelman Case received. This media review will start around 2007 until the present. We will look at the timeline of events as well as the players and the tactics used in the prosecution. We will defend the accusations that Karl Rove was the mastermind of the Siegelman case. We will support our conspiracy “theory” with facts. Finally we will comment on the disillusionment and loss of faith in our justice system that results from this case and other cases like this.
Come along with us on this journey. Participate. Forward the media articles, radio interviews and videos that I may have overlooked. And of course, feel free to comment.
