Don Siegelman’s coverage in the media exploded in 2007. The Attorney’s General Scandal, lies about the weapons of Mass Destruction and the Valerie Plame Affair all pointed a finger at the White House, and specifically to the consultant to the President, Karl Rove.
Then, in June several events rocketed the obscure Alabama governor to national consciousness. First, a sworn testimony exposed Karl Rove’s role as puppet master of Democratic Governor Don Siegelman’s prosecution. This revelation was soon followed by his early retirement from his White House position. Within this same time frame, the year-long Siegelman prosecution resulted in over-the-top, abusive treatment in sentencing. America was shocked – both sides of the aisle – and started to ask what was going on in Alabama?
