Dana Siegelman: I Met Karl Rove at the DNC
-- Exclusive Guest Blog by Dana Siegelman

There was rumor of Karl Rove's presence echoing in the halls of the Time Warner Cable Arena at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina on September 5th, 2012. For some reason, since he dared show up to the DNC, I immediately felt it was meant to be that I meet him in person.

I mean, here I am petitioning for a Presidential pardon to lift my father's 78 month prison sentence that came at the hands of many GOP operatives set on taking my dad --- a Democrat, and the only man to have served in every statewide office in Alabama --- out of politics…

4. This is a travesty of justice.

If you haven't signed Dana's petition please do so.

When you have former state and federal prosecutors reacting with surprise and disdain at this sentence you know something stinks. And Rove the turd is behind it.

If you don't know the story - Siegelman's conviction grew from his appointment of then-HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy to a state hospital regulatory board in exchange for, prosecutors say, a $500,000 contribution to Siegelman's effort to pass a statewide lottery for education.

This was not for a personal bribe or anything, but to help education in Alabama - I guess the GOPT were not too happy about that educamation thing - people get ideas when they get educamated.
