“Out of Solitary Confinement! Prison Official States: Never seen this happen before!”
Released from Solitary! This weekend, without an explanation, former Alabama governor Don Siegelman was told that the charges against him for donating a t-shirt to support the documentary Atticus v The Architect – The Political Assassination of Don Siegelman were dropped and his record expunged, according to family sources.
Don said he was not given a reason for the warden dropping the charges, and said that it even puzzled some of the prison officials, with one commenting, “I’ve never seen this happen before.”
Don also said, “I want to thank Congresswoman Sewell for taking her recent leadership role in my pardon efforts,” stating that he didn’t know if the two events were related but, “I’m sure grateful for both.”

“Miscarriage of Justice”
Alabama Congresswoman Terri Sewell released a statement in response to her former Governor spending time is solitary yet once again. It read: “After almost ten years, the unjust conviction of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman continues to be a miscarriage of justice and a blemish on the integrity of our nation’s justice system. Enough is enough.
“Our ultimate goal remains the early release and subsequent pardon of Mr. Siegelman so he can return to his family and once again contribute to the State of Alabama.”
“Mimi says: Call the White House! It Helps!”
Mimi Kennedy, star of the CBS hit sitcom MOM, emailed us that :
Omigod I just called the Comments Line and the man who answered asked a few questions, and I spelled Don’s name and gave a short summary (mentioning Rove’s name in the end.)
He said “Get all your friends to do this too. It really helps when it gets up to the White House.”
I said I would. “Let me get off the phone so I can circulate this and post it!” And he laughed and said, “I’m trying, I’m trying! Have a good day.”
At any rate he said “Call, it helps!” Learn More about how to contact the President!
