don_siegelman.jpg A federal appellate court has ordered former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman released from prison while he appeals his 2006 conviction for bribery. Siegelman, you'll remember, is the Democrat who went to prison under extremely suspicious circumstances after a long-term witch hunt conducted by the Republican party apparatus in the state. (Karl Rove was involved, too.)

The House Judiciary Committee has invited Siegelman to come testify about his case. Should make for good viewing.
