Don Siegelman, former Democratic governor of Alabama, was the target of a political prosecution in his home state earlier in this decade. He was wrongfully convicted on trumped-up charges and then sent to prison. Governor Siegelman was subsequently released pending appeal. He is currently attempting to have his case heard before the United States Supreme Court. Governor Don Siegelman, the only person to hold all 4 top statewide offices, served 26 honorable years working in politics for the people of Alabama.

Tomorrow, Monday, January 18, 2009, Governor Siegelman can be heard in an interview with Lila Garrett on her weekly radio program "Connect the Dots". It airs on KPFK (90.7 FM) in the Los Angeles area. The program airs from 7:00 to 8:00 AM West Coast Time. (9:00 AM Central; 10:00 AM East Coast)

The show streams live at www.KPFK.org. Also available in archives after airing.

The show's highlights will include Governor Siegelman's reflections on his role as a student leader during the epic civil rights struggles of his native Alabama, home of Martin Luther King, George Wallace and the 1964 church bombing killing black school children. Siegelman was student vice president in 1964 of Mobile's Murphy High School, the first major secondary school in Alabama to be desegregated. He went on to election in 1978 as attorney general as a leader of forward-looking white Democrats seeking to work with newly enfranchised blacks.
