Siegelman Speaks

don_siegelman.jpg We’ve covered former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman around these parts before. You can learn about him here or here. Suffice to say, it appears that Alabama Republicans couldn’t find a way to beat the Democratic Siegelman, so they stole an election from him and then gamed the legal system until they were able to throw him into prison. Below, you’ll find an hour-long interview he did with Air America (Siegelman is out of prison now) in which he puts a large share of blame on Karl Rove and suggests that Rep. John Conyers, head of the House Judiciary Committee, is going to do something about his situation. Settle in.

MOTHER JONES NEEDS YOUR HELP

Straight to the point: Donations have been concerningly slow for our hugely important First $500,000 fundraising campaign. We urgently need your help, and a lot of help, over the next few weeks so we can pay for the one-of-a-kind journalism you get from us.

Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” where we lay out this wild moment and how we can keep charging hard for you. And please help if you can: $5, $50, or $500—every gift from every person truly matters right now.
