Gov. Don Siegelman Fights On To Clear His Name

Ever since the unjust trial, conviction, imprisonment of Gov. Siegelman, I have been posting updates on the situation. The latest failure at the Court of Appeals is mind-boggling. After all, former government employees from the Bush torture year’s facing zero consequences for their actions. Gov. Siegelman never hurt anyone, committed not crime, and did not benefit financially.

Letter from Gov. Don Siegelman:

On Tuesday, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals failed to reverse my flawed, politically-motivated prosecution — even in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that says, in short, that political contributions in and of themselves aren’t bribery.

Well, we’re not giving up because we know that the law is on our side — and, in time, justice will be done.

But I need your help to keep up the fight, back to the appeals court and all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if we have to. Can I count on you?

Please contribute $25 or more to my legal defense fund now — in the wake of Tuesday’s appeals court ruling — and help me fight to overturn my Karl Rove-inspired political prosecution!

Let me be clear: I was never bribed. I never solicited a bribe. I never broke the law. In fact, I was never accused of taking a single penny. I was the fourth Governor of Alabama to appoint this same man to this same non-paying board, and that’s the crux of the prosecution’s case! Read more

Pray for Don Siegelman on his birthday

Tonight’s 60 minutes piece on the grave injustice served against former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman was very well done.  60 Minutes showed the monumental efforts to keep Siegelman out of Alabama politics.

  • How the Federal prosecutor, Laura Canary, that led the charge against him, is the wife of the campaign manager of Siegleman’s opponent in the 2006 Governor’s race.
  • How the main witness against Siegelman was a criminal who lied in order to get a reduced sentence on other charges.
  • How Washington intervened and began to systematically investigate anyone connected with Sielgeman, without cause.
  • How Siegelman never got a dime from the alleged bribery, was never accused of taking money, and was treated like a violent criminal—instead of the popular and successful Governor that he was.
  • And last but not least, how the Justice Department has not released any documents on the case—all members of the Justice department and the Bush White House have refused to testify to congress about the case of Gov. Don Siegelman.

Today was also Don’s Siegelman birthday. Let us pray for  his speedy release. Visit Donsiegelman.com for more info.
