Here are two items re: Don Siegelman, whose appeal is scheduled for Dec. 9.

First, an appeal for Don's defense fund. All those who would like to see Karl
Rove and his henchmen (and henchwomen) brought to justice should dig deep, and help Don out. (As it's unlikely that Obama will go after Rove, we need to help those who will do it.)

Also, here's an update on the appeal, with Glynn Wilson reporting that the
case against Don could be dismissed on Tuesday.

Dear Supporter,
Since I wrote you last week, we have seen an outpouring of support from our online community in my effort to raise the $30,000 I need to pay legal expenses for my appeal on December 9th.
But, with less than one week left, I still need your help to reach that goal.

Please donate what you can today -- so I can have the resources I need to keep fighting back and to hold Karl Rove accountable!

Not only is my freedom at stake, but so is the preservation of our democracy. If Karl Rove can turn the powers of government against me and get away with it, it can happen to anybody.

Winning my appeal on December 9th is the first step in turning all this around and will give Congress more incentive to dig for the truth. We must stop the unchecked political prosecutions and election engineering that put me in prison and threaten the very base of our democracy. But I can't do it alone.

Donate today -- and help take the Department of Justice back from political operatives like Karl Rove.

Exposing Rove's misuse of power within the Department of Justice is essential to protecting the future Americans voted for on November 4th and ensuring no one is ever subjected to the same politically motivated prosecution I endured ever again.


My Legal Defense Fund can accept contributions of any size from any source. Please give as much as you are comfortable with giving to help me meet my legal expenses.

Thank you again for your continued support. Rest assured I will keep fighting, one way or another, to ensure that Karl Rove is brought to justice once and for all.

Thank you and God bless,


Don Siegelman
Governor of Alabama
1999-2003

Appeals Panel Could Drop Siegelman Case Tuesday
Juror Misconduct Investigation Re-Opened


In light of recent information from a new whistle-blower in the Bush Justice Department's political prosecutions still under investigation by Congress, including the case of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, the federal court in Montgomery has re-opened the investigation into juror misconduct, according a document just filed with the appeals court in Atlanta.

And the three-judge panel could drop the case against Siegelman and HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy next Tuesday, Dec. 9, in Atlanta.
