MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Former Gov. Don Siegelman leaves today for Louisiana to finish his prison sentence after an unsuccessful six-year battle to overturn his conviction in a 2006 bribery case.
Siegelman must report to prison Tuesday, although his friends and supporters continue to try to lobby for a presidential pardon.
"Today my mom, brother, and I are driving Dad to prison, 455 miles away from our home in Birmingham, AL. He has to be there by 2 p.m tomorrow," Siegelman's daughter , Dana, wrote in a e-mail to supporters.
Dana Siegelman is collecting signatures on a petition, on change.org, to try to build support for a presidential pardon.
