Why the Hell Is Don Siegelman Still Being Persecuted?


We are still working tirelessly to get media coverage. You can help by writing and calling CBS 60 Minutes and telling them to re-visit the case in greater detail.

Why?

  • Because the statute of limitations had expired and prosecutors brought the case anyway - using RICO - which Professor G. Robert Blakey (the leading authority on RICO) said was a total misuse of RICO.

  • Because the federal judge who resided over the case accepted millions in defense contracts from the Bush Administration for his personal business, Doss Aviation.

  • Because U.S. Prosecutors, such as David Iglesias, admitted to being fired for ceasing to pursue political prosecutions.

  • Because Siegelman's prosecutors were intimately connected to Siegelman's political opponents.

  • Because Karl Rove has tried to defend himself against the accusations involving Siegelman (including Chapter 34 of his book) but refused to testify under oath when subpenaed by the House Judiciary Committee!

  • Because sworn testimony implicates Rove and a handful of others in the Siegelman prosecution.

  • Because Jack Abramoff admitted that Don Siegelman was his greatest political target; $20 million was spent in Alabama (illegally) to defeat the education lottery!

  • Because Siegelman was charged with something that has never been a crime in America. The precedent set in his case seriously threatens the democratic process and easily implicates every elected official nation-wide.

Let CBS 60 Minutes know there are many who are ready to go forward and speak about this case. Let them know that Siegelman is an American hero and his story cannot be forgotten. We need your help. Media support is crucial.

Thank you,

Dana Siegelman
