so unbelievable glad that he is out. people out of the state probably don't get it, but this is a HUGE deal. siegelman was sentenced to more than seven years in prison, and he has already been in for over 8 months.

we still have work to do though.. so let's get to it!

24. Here's a quote from Albert Camus for you, Gov. Seigelman! Congratulations
to you and your legal team and all your supporters, and to the judges on the appellate court who saw through this travesty, and had the courage to rule accordingly! You have all given us hope in a dark time. I would also like to apologize to you, Governor, on behalf of our less than vigilant citizenry. We are all responsible for your unjust imprisonment, one way or another. We have all failed our democracy, in one way or another. And we must do better. It's going to take a lot of us to put our broken country back together. Your freedom is a beginning. And I think Camus' quote is an appropriate call to arms.

"I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice. I don't want just any greatness for it, particularly a greatness born of blood and falsehood. I want to keep it alive by keeping justice alive." --Albert Camus ("Resistance, Rebellion and Death")

27. Many D.U.'ers have been sick about this, worrying, talking it over for ages.
People have known what happened was arranged a very long time, and been beside themselves that this could have EVER happened.

Once this situation is straightened out, we're hoping changes are made which will make it far HARDER for anyone to try this ever again against a political or personal adversary. We all want to see Rove thumped SOUNDLY because of this. How dare these people corrupt our government this way.

Your excellent character shines right through throughout this ordeal. You have made fast friends and admirers where there were only strangers before. The way you have conducted yourself is beyond reproach.

Thank you for not giving up, for not becoming publicly small, petty, hostile, when you had every right in the world to be wild with rage. You tower over those who have abused you for political opportunity.

Best wishes. You can be sure we are all waiting in hope for a TOTAL exoneration for you, and far better days ahead.

We'll continue to fight with you, to indict Karl Rove and expose Republican crimes, and fight for all of US. We must end corruption in the Judicial System and restore balance so we can once again have freedom in the USA.

I snatched out of your fridge when you were Secretary of State and my dad Redding Pitt was on your staff, tucked into in that great old office inside the Capitol building, back when it was still a government building and not a museum. The most haunted structure in the country.



Kick ass in Conyer's committee hearing. You have an incredibly important story to tell.

The Earl of Chatham is an old relative.

Old, old Alabama blood, weirdly enough. I've known Don Siegelman personally for almost 30 years.

My family tends towards government gigs and campaign jobs.

I am so glad you are back home with your family!

Please don't forget to continue fighting for justice to those who are deserving of it-rove et al. Sweeping it under the carpet like was done w Iran contra/BCCI only allows it to fester and mutate into something worse!

You have been in my thoughts ever since I learned about the injustices against you. Please know that you have a huge following of supporters behind you; we have come to know you and care about you and your family. As long as you and your family need us, we'll be there. Those of us who can afford it are contributing to your legal defense fund. We have, and will, write to our members of Congress to express our outrage over your treatment. We have your back. Just tell us what you need ....

My family has been praying for you, writing the right people and cursing the wrong people. We've done everything but donate money. Sorry, we're poor :shrug:

We jumped out of our chairs when we saw the video of you actually outside the jail and getting in your suv.

Please, please, please, watch your back. You're very dangerous to a lot of very powerful people. We fear for you and yours. As suggested down thread, check for "bugs" and be careful who you trust. Tell your family & friends to stay safe.

God Bless Ya, and GO GET 'EM!!!

this issue front & center. You, and a couple of others, have been relentless on this injustice. I have been so disappointed at the lack of coverage this issue received from the M$M. Even Keith, who is a personal hero of mine, has been lax in reporting on this. Thom Hartmann and Sam Seder are the only ones I know who've occasionally brought this issue to the fore.

Thanks Again.....and welcome home Gov. Siegelman.

165. Welcome back...welcome back...welcome back.
All day the theme from 'Welcome Back, Kotter' has been running through my head.

I felt good and safe and relaxed when I tucked into my own bed after a few drinks and a good meal last night.
And I thought how much we take this for granted.
And how Don Siegelman must be enjoying the same thing, but to the 10th power.

Welcome back, Don.

168. Welcome home Governor Siegelman
The smile on your daughter's face on the Dan Abrams show the other night told me that everything was going to be ok.

Please remember that there are a lot of compulsive brainiacs on the internet who can help you put the stories together about what happened here. We saw that Prosecutor Fitzgerald almost got that liar in the bush administration. Justice would be to catch Karl Rove on something and put him away.

177. The Bush government is no better than the gang running Red
China.

Torture, spies, lies and political prisoners. Freedom will soon be totally extinct in America, if we can't stop the hard right GOP's all out attack on our civil rights.

The "Right" has been wrong for too long!

Trust of government has been replaced by fear.

I will NEVER again trust anyone, who has gone along to get along with the "Decider" and his lying crooked crew. It's time for the lies to stop.

It's time the people were able to DECIDE again based on the truth, who or what is best for a free America, instead of Bush/Cheney Inc., the Corporate Owned Reich Wing Media, Diebold/Rove and the SCOTUS!

We need to stand up NOW for the generations to come.

We need to hand over a better America to the generations of Americans to come than the America that was passed down to us to uphold and protect, from ALL enemies of the Constitution Of The United States Of America.

We need to VOTE...VOTE SMART...and to DEMAND...that our votes be fairly counted! It's what the founders of this country depended on us to do, to make their American Dream continue on for you and me, our kids and their kids to come.

182. Stand Tall Governor Siegelman We Have Your Back!
...Karl Rove has horribly damaged this country and gotten away with it, but you stood strong even from behind bars. And your daughter was beyond brave to stand firm with you. We are hoping you will finally bring Rove down with the Truth about his treasonous activities, not only with you but with Valerie Plame, the purging of attorneys for partisan reasons, and Sibel Edwards. This man and all his cohorts really need to face the music for all they have done. You are a light in this endeavor and I cannot tell you how proud I am that you stood tall and stood by the Truth and that perhaps your strength will also aid the others who have lived through the hell that Karl Rove created for this country and for you all.

Hang in there Governor, we are so glad you are free!
