Tonight (Feb. 24) on 60 Minutes, there will be a segment covering Don Siegelman’s trial and incarceration with a 7 year sentence. There are many who believe that Siegelman was hunted by the Bush Justice Department with the help of Karl Rove in order to neutralize this Democratic politician who was a thorn in the Republicans’ side.

We’ve already covered the story in this post.

There is also more information about him and his situation at Donsiegelman.org and thetruthaboutdon.com.

  • There are many who believe that Siegelman was hunted by the Bush Justice Department with the help of Karl Rove in order to neutralize this Democratic politician who was a thorn in the Republicans’ side.

    Oh, well, if many people “believe that”…!

  • Oh, well, if the transcript of the trial that was due within 30 days of the trial would be released already, 7 months later, then maybe Mr. Siegelman could, you know, appeal his sentence and then those people who “believe that” justice was railroaded here in favor of politics – you know, like people who wonder what happened to those seven Jusrice Department prosecutors who were fired for no apparent reason other than their insufficient hounding of Democrats – would stop believing that the most fundamental principles of our democracy were undermined by Rove and his henchmen.
