9. BEST WISHES to you, Gov. Siegelman. May JUSTICE finally be served.
What they did to you was done to ALL of us - and more CITIZENS need to understand that.

May this truly become a Happy Day for you and us.

10. Governor, You are a Defender of Freedom
Your suffering will be instrumental in bringing back Justice to this country, it has wandered off the track but you will put it back and we will have justice for all and not a society where political beliefs determine guilt or
innocence, we will restore the legal system and will have guilt determined by evidence not vendetta. I think of you often and know this, I think that you are one of the lights that will bring us out of this darkness, keep striving for justice because your case is not just your personal freedom but justice for all of us.

and your story is being publicized on 60 Minutes. Those who did this to you should be in jail not you.

46. Entire CBS VIDEO up on Harper too, plus a great article
CBS: More Prosecutorial Misconduct in Siegelman Case
Scott Horton - February 24, 2008 - http://harpers.org/archive/2008/02/hbc-90002487


CBS aired its long-awaited feature on the prosecution and imprisonment of former Alabama Governor Don E. Siegelman this evening at 7:00. In a stunning move of censorship, the transmission was blocked across the northern third of Alabama by CBS affiliate WHNT, which is owned by interests of the Bass Family. Those who were in the zone of censorship or who missed it, can catch the whole segment here:

The CBS piece, for which I was repeatedly interviewed, came through on its promise to deliver several additional bombshells. The most significant of these was the disclosure that prosecutors pushed the case forward and secured a conviction relying on evidence that they knew or should have known was false ....

43. Can't we do more than shout out? Here are two better things, and one is EASY.
Edited on Mon Feb-25-08 04:17 AM by pnwmom
Contact CBS/60 minutes by going to the link and clicking on "contact us" at the bottom of the page. Then tell them THANK YOU for the story and ask them to follow up with more.

If you feel so inclined, ask them any questions you might have. I'm asking why the judge will not give Siegelman's lawyers the trial transcript that he was required to provide them within 30 days -- and without which, Siegelman is prevented from filing an appeal. (And it's past 20 months now, and counting.)

http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/60minutes/main3415.shtm...

Then, if you can, go to Don Siegelman's site and make a donation of any size to his legal fund. This man has already been in jail for 20 months without having a chance to appeal. He needs HELP.

If 100,000 DUers each gave $1. . . well, wouldn't that be something.

45. Ditto that.
And follow the OP link if you need more facts first. There is a lot "not covered" in the segment.

We can ask about the illegal financing of the Riley campaign, involving Abramoff, Scanlan, and Reed.

We can ask about the role of Noel Hillman, the Abramoff investigator.

We can ask about the Fixed Election.

47. Right. They could have spent the whole hour on this one topic
and it would have been eye-opening and well worth it.
